Blick Art Materials Sponsors 2011 Otis College Benefit Auction, Best Work of Otis College Art and Design Students Featured in Curated Exhibition

Blick Supports May 7 Silent Auction - Silent Auction to be Held with 29th Annual Otis Scholarship Benefit Fashion Show on May 7 in Beverly Hills

LOS ANGELES - (April 25, 2011) Otis College of Art and Design announced today that Blick Art Materials is the exclusive sponsor of the 2011 Otis Benefit Silent Auction featuring art and design created by students of Otis College. With hundreds of works that include original paintings, drawings and prints, ceramics and sculpture, photography, illustrations, original toy designs, fashion, home and office products, digital media and more, the 2011 benefit auction will offer something for every level of art and design enthusiast—from the beginning collector to the most avid aficionado. Esteban Schimpf, artist, curator and founder of the gallery Actual Size Los Angeles in Chinatown, curates the auction.

Currently celebrating 100 years in business, Blick Art Materials is the premier art supply source for professional artists, students, and teachers with multiple stores in the Los Angeles area. "Blick Art Materials is dedicated to supporting art and art education in every way that we can, including partnerships with colleges nationwide, such as the Otis College of Art and Design," said Edward Ogorzaly, President of Blick Art Materials. "While we are the largest in the industry, with the broadest assortment and best prices, it is our service and community involvement that set us apart from all the rest. We are excited to support the 2011 Otis Benefit Silent Auction."
The Blick-sponsored auction will be held on May 7 at The Beverly Hilton in conjunction with the 29th annual Otis Scholarship Benefit Dinner and Fashion Show. Over 1,000 leaders in entertainment, fashion, business and finance as well as society patrons, press, celebrities, students, alumni and other supporters are expected to attend the benefit gala. The runway show of student designs is considered one of L.A.'s biggest and best annual fashion shows.
This annual black-tie event – silent auction, dinner and fashion show - is Otis College's largest fundraiser, last year grossing $1 million in scholarships for art and design students. Tickets and additional information are available at http://archive.otis.edu/sbs or by calling (310) 665-6858.
