Art or Die is a fundraiser we have started to hold annually at our Burl and Ingot Tool Share library. This fundraiser is based on an art troupe that coined the term Art or Die.
During this event, we take art that is unloved and abandoned at Artisan Alley and auction it off. The winning bidder of the art chooses if they would like to keep it, or destroy it with a tool of their choice.
On January 11, 2019 Artisan Alley held their Art or Die fundraiser. We raised over $145 at this event, and we are so thankful to everyone who took part in the fun! We had over 10 pieces up for auction. Some abandoned pieces were taken home with the winning bidders, and some pieces were blow torched, hit with a sledgehammer, burned in a bonfire, etc.
