NOTSTOCK to Help Minot Family

In June, 2011, Minot, North Dakota experienced a devastating flood. Over 4,000 homes were affected; 80% of them had severe damage.

In the midst of this disaster and recovery, a few kids did their part through their art and the help of their teachers to raise money for a family with kids who was impacted by the flood. NOTSTOCK guest artist, Dave DeVries, asked area elementary students to draw a picture of a "beaver rebuilding Minot" or a "Monster Beaver," as MSU's mascot is the beaver.

Over 100 students submitted drawings. Dave selected three of them. One drawing was used to paint a "Monster Beaver" like in DeVries' book, The Monster Engine. The "Minot" text from another drawing was added to the painting. DeVries turned the third drawing into a pen-and-ink drawing that was screen printed onto T-shirts and other apparel at NOTSTOCK.

Now the "Monster Beaver" painting and "beaver rebuilding Minot" drawing are up for auction on eBay from November 2-12. All proceeds will be donated to a Minot family with six children devastated by this summer's flood.
