Local artist and gallery owner Hector Vega and the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center (CRCC) are launching a unique fund raiser called the Funky Diva Purse Auction to be held Saturday, November 12, 2005 at the Tower Press Building, 1900 Superior Avenue.

We are inviting fifty select artists to create works of art out of a cool template handbag that has been created especially for this event. These custom-made, wearable works of art will be on view and then auctioned off at the Funky Diva Purse Auction!

This will be a juried show judged by a panel of local community leaders, artists, celebrities and “fashionistas,” including Kim Crow, fashion editor of the Plain Dealer. We are encouraging “out of the purse” thinking here! Prizes will be awarded to artists who create the best bags in the following categories:


Girl Power!

Bling Bling!

Most Romantic


Most Retro

Flower Power

Black Tie

Most Rock n’ Roll

Mother Nature
