INDY NEWS: ART IN WRESTLING - Wrestling Art Show September 21st
Tuesday, September 12, 2017
When you think of wrestling, art may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But local artist Danny Granger is bringing body slams out of the ring and onto the easel—all in the name of charity.
ART IN WRESTLING is the debut art show from local artist Danny Granger. Danny’s engaging style lends itself to many mediums, but for this inaugural presentation he has chosen the striking contrast of black acrylic on white canvas.
The ART IN WRESTLING collection is composed of 10 pieces ranging in size. Each painting memorializes an iconic scene from wrestling history. Hard-core wrestling fans, those with a love of nostalgia, and art connoisseurs alike will find something that catches their eye.
The collection will be sold by silent auction on the evening of September 21st. ALL proceeds will be donated to the SickKids Foundation Possibilities Fund: the highest priority needs fund at SickKids. This is a charity that is very close to the artist’s heart.
“When my daughter was 3 days old she stopped breathing. We spent 73 hours and 52 minutes at SickKids Hospital in Toronto. She was hooked up to an IV, and they did many tests on her. Thankfully, now she's a perfectly happy and healthy 2 year old. It’s very important to me to to give back to the incredible professionals at SickKids who were there for our family at the scariest time of our lives.” - Danny Granger, Artist
