Sweet Art Proposal

Crockett, CA 94525

Dear Sir/Madam:

Hello. My name is Diane Keys, and I am an artist living in Chicago, IL.  I am writing regarding an art proposal I have in mind.

It is my desire to create the world’s largest sugar cube igloo. As the popular ad campaign goes, “America Runs on Dunkin’”—which means…sugar!

I am humbly asking your permission to erect my structure in front of your building. I request you donate 500,000 sugar cube and generous amounts of confectioner’s sugar (the mortar will be a combination of egg whites and powdered sugar).  I will pitch a tent to stay in while I am making this granular creation. I am hoping it will break the world record, or at least look really cool.

I feel this will give your company great publicity and will hopefully put me on the map in the art world.

I thank you for your time and consideration  and look forward to a favorable response from you.

Sincerely yours,

Diane Keys
407 S. Liberty Street

p.s. I would also need you to reimburse me for travel expenses to and from your locale.

Newest Art Proposal--dedicated to the lovely rabbit loving Svenja Wahl

February 13, 2012

Easter Seals Inc.

Chicago, IL

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Diane Keys, and I am a local artist. I am writing regarding a fundraiser/art project  I would like to propose, to raise money for your organization.

With Easter time upon us, I would like to host an event over Easter weekend called “Decorate a Bunny for Charity”. I am in talks with the American Rabbit Breeders Association, to supply us with 1,000 white rabbits. Crayola will be donating  the art supplies (assuming they respond to my emails).

Participants will pay an entry fee.  This will entitle them to one white rabbit and art supplies to decorate it with.  It will be a juried competition and the winner will receive a year’s supply of hair coloring from L’oreal of Paris (assuming they return my emails) and/or Eggland‘s Best (assuming they return my phone calls).

At the end of the competition, the rabbits will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. All the proceeds will go to your wonderful organization.

All I am asking from you, is that I be able to use your building for this event. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards,

Diane Keys
