Valspar Automotive announced it is bringing its brand family of quality performance coatings and products together with the creative talents of top custom artists to the SEMA Show Nov. 3-6 to raise money through Artists4Education and help fund the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF).
Artists including Ryan Evans of Count’s Kustoms and The History Channel’s Counting Cars, Josh Culver of Culver’s Customs, Ron “Flea” Fleenor, John Wargo of The Custom Shop, Nub of NubGrafix, Jon Kosmoski of House of Kolor, KC Mathieu of KC’s Paint Shop, and Jason Jewett of Red House Custom Paint are offering their time and creative skills by painting and donating items to be auctioned off during the show. The funds received will go directly to benefiting CREF, which gives future technicians the proper education and training for a successful collision repair career.
“This is the very heart of what we love about how car and motorcycle culture and art come together – the unleashed creativity and generosity is simply mind blowing!” said Laura Yerkey, marketing director, Americas, at Valspar Automotive.
Monetary donations are also being accepted on the Artists4Education website. To view the items as they’re painted live during the SEMA Show, visit Valspar Automotive booth nos. 10851, 10655 and 23513.
