The Fourth Annual Itty Bitty Art Sale includes original artworks by artists, architects, designers, celebrities, musicians and talented amateurs. The postcard sized artworks will be sold for only $40, but the work is signed on the back so no one knows the artist’s identity until the work is purchased. The full list of artists and images of the artworks can been seen at http://www.ittybittyart.org/. The artists list currently includes Shelley Adler, MB Boissonnault, Clare Graham, Cameron Gray, José Lozano, Tom Lunquist, Robert Melendez, Robert Passantino, Klaus Rinke, and Christian Vincent as well as entertainment celebrities Phyllis Diller, Peri Gilpin, Jack McBrayer, Conan O’Brien, Stan Lee, and Octavia Spencer, Nia Vardalos and Dan Povenmire and many of the actors and artists from Disney’s “Phineas & Ferb.”

The Itty Bitty Art sale is presented by PS1 Pluralistic School, an independent school in Santa Monica. All proceeds benefit PS1 and community-based projects. The sale was started four years ago by Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, co-executive producer and co-creator of Disney’s animated television series “Phineas and Ferb,” and his wife, Bear.
The Itty Bitty Art sale will be held Sunday, February 12, 2012 at the Gallery of Functional Art at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. Viewing begins at 10 a.m. and the sale starts at 11 a.m. All postcards will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of five per person. According to the organizers, over the years, crowds have gathered as early as 6:00 a.m. on the day of the sale in the hopes of acquiring their desired pieces.
