Art Opportunity to Help Kids

I heard yesterday from Adele Kurtzman, Harvey’s widow. Each year, she calls our attention to a charity auction for The Clear View School, 480 Albany Post Road, Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510. Sponsor of the school is the Association for Mentally Ill Children of Westchester, Inc. The school business office phone number is (914) 941-8988.

Thanks to the association with the Kurtzmans, the school auction features the art donated by many major comics professionals. A partial list of such contributors for the 22nd such auction is:

R. Crumb
Jack Davis
Terry Gilliam (did you know he met John Cleese when Gilliam was working for Harvey?)
Bill Griffith (contributing a Zippy piece)
Beto Hernandez
Jay Lynch
Frank Miller
Gilbert Shelton (contributing a Fat Freddy piece from 1981)
Art Spiegelman
Mort Walker

The live and silent auction and dinner will take place Nov. 10 this year. It “features a variety of interesting and exciting items for auction conducted by David Rama, owner of the Cattle Exchange in upstate New York.” It’s catered at the school — and a Westchester calendar gives the address as 555 Albany Post Rd. The event starts at 6 p.m., with a $45 charge for general admission. More information and reservations are available at (914) 941-4653 (the Development Office).
