Project Help is calling Artists to participate in “Visions in Black & White” art show and auction.

Project Help, a 501c3 charity, is hosting their signature fundraiser “Visions in Black & White”.  This event is an art show and auction that will take place on November 2, 2017.

About the event:  “Visions in Black & White” will consist of framed art that portrays Patriotism done in black and white (grayscale).  The art, in the form of photography, painting, sketch, charcoal or any farmable art, is welcome in the show.

The artists should have some lineage to a military person, directly or through marriage, even if it goes as far back as far as the Revolutionary War. 

How it works:  All art must submitted in digital format to start the process.  It will all get uploaded to their bidding website beginning on August 1, 2017 and all of the art will be able to be bid on.  From there about 50 pieces will be selected for the silent auction and 10-15 will be selected for the live auction at the “Visions in Black & White” event on November 2, 2017.

Artists will be paid a percentage of the sale no matter where it is sold.  The rest will go to Project Help to support their “Hardship Grant Fund” and to support the “Mobile Closet” and job readiness project.

Our Goal: “We want to honor our military, veterans and artists at this event and online auction by promoting their talent, sharing their bio and raising funds to help our veterans during difficult times”, said Sandy Mitchell, Founder of Project Help.”

Artists can download the Prospectus from the website or by sending an email to Sandy@mitchellclan and it will be sent directly to the artists who are interested in being part of this event.  Artists should submit their completed prospectus as soon as possible to hold a spot in the show/auction.

Sponsorship is still available and more information about being a sponsor is available by contacting or call 973-875-2068.

About Project Help:  “Project Help, Inc., is a 501c3 charity that supports veterans and their families during difficult times. Just recently, we were called upon to help a veteran who was about to lose his home to foreclosure.  We were able to provide him legal representation to stop the foreclosure and funds to catch him up.  He now has hope for a better future”, said Mitchell.

To get involved with Project Help as a donor, volunteer, committee member, Ambassador or board member, contact Sandy at 973-875-2068.   There are many opportunities to become part of the solution.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Random House, 1965)


In Cold Blood is, quite simply, the grand-daddy of true crime writing, dubbed by Capote, himself, as the first non-fiction novel (although Norman Mailer argued the point when he published The Executioner's Song in 1979.) The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
