“Voyage” by Josh Copus
“If I decide to donate a piece to an art auction, I want to feel proud of what that piece represents, because it is an honor and a privilege to be approached for a donation to a worthy cause. When I give, I always make sure to give something that I myself would want to own.
Before I donate my work, because it is an extension of who I am and what I do as an artist, I also want to be sure that the organization I am giving to stands for something I really believe in. I need to know that the organization is really making a difference in our community.
OpenDoors is that type of cause and is an organization that I have repeatedly supported throughout the years, because I know they are doing good work. I believe that children are our greatest asset and that with education and opportunity any child has the ability to achieve great things in this world. It’s all about giving kids a chance and if my work can help contribute to that, then I’m more than happy to give as much as I can – and the best work I can create.”
