Free Art Prints for Donations to Hurricane Relief

Press Release:    

In an effort to encourage donations to help hurricane victims, award-winning artist Alex Steelsmith is giving away free prints of two of his most popular artworks to anyone who sends him a donation of $75 or more for the American Red Cross. Steelsmith is making his offer available for the entire month of September.*

Steelsmith's fundraising effort is unusual in that it allows collectors to acquire the prints by making their donation checks payable not to him but to the American Red Cross. "I want people to be absolutely guaranteed that 100 percent of what they donate for the prints goes directly to the Red Cross," he says.  

The two free prints are titled Beginnings and Elysium. You can find more information about the artworks, and view close-ups, at Neither of the prints Steelsmith is offering is available as an Artist's Proof on the website. These Artist's Proofs are considered to be in a more exclusive category than other prints, and they are marked accordingly when the artist signs them.  

If you would like to make a contribution, here's how it works: 

If you send a donation of $75 for the Red Cross, Steelsmith will send you a free signed Artist's Proof of Beginnings (11.6" x 15").

If you send a donation of $150 for the Red Cross, Steelsmith will send you free signed Artist's Proofs of both Beginnings and Elysium (11" x 14.8").    
If you send a donation of $200 or more for the Red Cross, in addition to Beginnings and Elysium, Steelsmith will send you a third "surprise" print to add to your collection. (The price of the print he selects will correspond to the amount you give.)   

Make your donation for the prints in the form of a check payable to the American Red Cross. Please write "Hurricane Relief" on the check's memo line, and mail your check to:   

Attn: Relief Fund 
Steelsmith Publishing 
150 Hamakua Drive, #800
