"100 Artists See Satan" Fundraiser and Exhibit Opens June 26
June 22, 2010
Grand Central Arts Forum, the support group for Grand Central Art Center is revitalizing the hit exhibition, “100 Artists See Satan,” a survey of contemporary artists and their interpretation of the supreme demon.

Unlike the original exhibition, this iteration of the collection will be presented as a fundraiser, with works available for sale to the public. All proceeds will benefit future GCAC programs and exhibitions.
The public opening reception is scheduled Saturday, June 26, from 7-10 p.m. On July 3, from 7-10 p.m., GCAC hosts another reception to coincide with Downtown Santa Ana’s First Saturday Arts Walk. The exhibition will remain on display through Aug. 15.
The exhibit “100 Artists See Satan” was originally organized by GCAC in response to the exhibition “100 Artists See God,” curated by John Baldessari and Meg Cranston for Independent Curators Inc. New York. The two shows exhibited simultaneously in 2004 — "Satan" at GCAC and "God" at Laguna Art Museum — and gained notable attention from the public and media.
This second installation of the exhibit will offer the public a chance to purchase works from acclaimed artists. To further raise funds, Grammy Award-winning graphic and packaging designer Hugh Brown has been commissioned to design "Satan’s credit card," a limited edition of 666 that will be available at the GCAC bookstore for $50. Cardholder’s benefits include a discount on select merchandise in the center’s Sales Gallery, as well as the opportunity to win an artwork from the exhibition.
