An art fundraiser for Mali Health Organizing Project: On November 27th, artists Geddes Levenson and Annie Blazejack set aside a day for a painting conversation. Over the course of 24 hours, each painted 24 works on paper; each responding to the other's work and together building two series of images. Paintings can be purchased at for $250 each. Half of all proceeds will go directly to the Mali Health Organizing Project.

More about Art Marathon for M.H.O.P.

Last December, artists Geddes Levenson and Annie Blazejack made 12 paintings in 12 hours and sold them to benefit The Mali Health Organizing Project or MHOP - an organization dedicated to empowering urban West African communities to improve maternal and child health. The $1000.00 they raised helped opened a community-run clinic in Sikoro, Mali.

The artists will scale up the project this year, to 24 paintings in 24 hours. Responding to the themes and compositions in each other’s work, the two artists will engage in a 24 hour art dialogue.

The Marathon will be documented in real-time online, and viewers will be encouraged to leave comments and offer inspiration. After the performance, the 48 paintings will be available for purchase through this blog.
