Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Mastodon’s Troy Sanders and the Kills’ Alison Mosshart are among the musicians that will auction off their artwork to raise money for a Los Angeles children’s learning center.
No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, artist Shepard Fairey and tattoo artist Kat Von D will also provide pieces to the charity at auction, taking place February 8th at Smile + Wonder, a therapy center and preschool founded by At the Drive-In/Gone Is Gone member Tony Hajjar and his wife Nicole.
“We know how hard it is to raise a child,” Tony Hajjar said in a statement. “And if there’s a child that needs more help than others, we know how difficult that is, too. Smile + Wonder was created to help children reach their full potential.”
Gone Is Gone, a supergroup featuring Hajjar, Sanders and Van Leeuwen, will also perform at the February art auction. Fans hoping to attend the auction and performance can enter a raffle for a chance to be among the 100 invitees to the event. Those not in attendance can also bid on the musicians’ art via the Smile + Wonder site.
