The Silent Auction proceeds will be split between the artist and the FAA this year.
The FAA will use the funds for art exhibits, classes and projects during the year.
With only a theme, a few guidelines and choice of either $25 or a mailbox provided by FAA, artists took the challenge to create an original mailbox. They could be functional or not, but should be weather proof. Materials used to create these masterpieces included old drawers, baskets, shingles, cat house, jewelry, metal, plastic, sea shells, automotive parts and other recycled items. The following participating artists definitely outdid themselves:
