Children’s Art Auction and Reception at BEA

This past Wednesday, Bright was able to participate in a very exciting event at BookExpo America (BEA).

 

For the past 19 years ‘The Annual Children’s Book Art Silent Auction and Reception’ has been held at BEA and presented by the American Booksellers Association (ABA-a sponsor of ‘Banned Books Week’, a co-founder of ‘Kids’ Right to Read Project’,  and a non-profit association), as well as the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE).

The auction featured original artwork of children’s books, sketches, paintings and limited edition prints-all bright and wonderful. Proceeds will be donated for ABFFE’s projects supporting, and defending, freedom of speech within the children’s book industry.

Bright Artists that donated their brilliant pieces included:

       

It was a lovely time and we were so excited to be a part of it.
