Just a heads up about this most worthy cause. The art in this auction is also being published as a book which we will sell in the Museum Store later this year.
Proceeds from the auction and book sales will help to offset the Sakai family’s ongoing medical expenses. There is some GREAT art to be had created by a stellar list of artists. The auction starts on March 6!
Stan and Sharon have been wonderful supporters and partners of JANM. We had an exhibition of his work in 2011 (Year of the Rabbit: Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo), he presented a session at our 2013 National Conference in Seattle, and we sell many Usagi Yojimbo products in our Museum Store, including JANM exclusive items.
Here is a photo of Stan and Sharon in 2011 at our Gala Dinner that year—happier times!
