Win a Gift Certificate for Whodunit? Art at OCAD

I find that buying a fantastic piece of art, for an incredibly low price, is always a satisfying experience. When you throw in an element of mystery, by only learning the identity of the artist after purchasing art, it can be pretty fun as well. Having the proceeds of the sale go to upgrades for the Dorothy H. Hoover Library and a new student Learning Zone at OCAD is simply icing on the cake.

The annual Whodunit? OCAD Mystery Art Sale is just around the corner. From November 19th to 21st, prospective buyers will be able to preview a vast collection of lovely, donated 5.5x7.5 works, each created by a mystery artist (some famous and others soon-to-be) and available for purchase for just $75 on a first-come-first-served basis on November 22nd. Only after the works are sold will the artists be revealed.

The Ontario College of Art & Design is offering BlogTO readers a chance to win one of three gift certificates, each valued at $75, and redeemable for original works of art in its annual Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale. Art in the sale can be previewed online at www.ocad.ca or in person from November 19th to 21st - and the sale itself takes place on Saturday, November 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
