As part of the Boneyard Arts Festival, CUDO is putting on a collaborative showcase of letterforms crafted by artists, designers, and anyone with a love for typography.

This year’s fundraiser will feature more than 100 unique letters, symbols, and punctuation, including favorites like the comma, ampersand, exclamation mark, and more! The format has been expanded this year to include all forms of mixed media, so each letterform is truly one of a kind.

Friday, April 8, 2011
6:00pm – 10:00pm
Cakes on Walnut
114 N Walnut St, Champaign IL

abCU is CUDO’s major fundraiser for the year, so this is your chance to support what we’re doing in the community!

30% of the proceeds will go to the Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation (CUSF), which helps fund public education in Champaign and Urbana. Any unsold artwork will be displayed on April 12th at Indi Go’d Gallery’s “Creative Re-use Art Celebration and Benefit Show”, proceeds benefiting CUSF.

Produced with the support of the I.D.E.A. Store, our hosts at Cakes on Walnut, and Weiskamp Screen Printing.

We look forward to seeing you there!
