Frenchy to paint performances by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews
October 2nd, 2010
Milwaukee, WI – Renowned artist and performance painter, Frenchy, makes his 7th visit in as many years to the legendary benefit concert, Farm Aid. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the event dedicated to raising money to help sustain America’s farmers.
Frenchy will be bringing his energy and unique style to the venue at Millers Field to capture and commemorate this historic gathering on canvas. Frenchy is tentatively scheduled to paint performances by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, and possibly more. As always, he will donate portions of the proceeds to the Farm Aid cause. Frenchy’s efforts have earned the organization over $20,000 through 2009 and this year promises to be the biggest.
Frenchy is the passionate and exciting performance painter from New Orleans, Louisiana. Thriving in the rich and vibrant atmosphere of the French Quarter, he harnesses this energy to produce works of unmatched color and vitality. Though his talent spans many forms and styles, Frenchy is carving a name for himself painting live engagements from the likes of Trombone Shorty, Phish and Willie Nelson to Monday Night Football and the Olympics.
Farm Aid features the best that music has to offer, while remaining true to its ultimate mission including promoting family farms, growing the Good Food movement, Helping farmers thrive, and taking action to change the system.
