The Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery and world famous 3-D pop artist Charles Fazzino will host a special children's event at the downtown Austin gallery on April 24, 2010 from 11 am-Noon am. The legendary artist, known for his popular 3-D art, wanted to work with local children to participate in a special art project and let them contribute to the art piece which will be donated back to Dell Children's Medical Center
The kids will help with art for the border of one of my Texas art pieces, which will be customized with a special Dell Children's logo. I will donate the completed piece back to the medical center as an addition to their art collection, and hope that it gives many smiles to the kids and families of Central Texas."
Refreshments and a morning full of creative fun will keep the kids busy while they get a chance to contribute to this special art piece to be hung at the medical center. Fazzino is coming to town as part of a unique pairing of two legendary pop artists - with Michael Godard - both with very different approaches to their work but coming together for one show to display outstanding art.
