Local Artist David Garibaldi Returns to Auto Museum Tonight

Sacramento-native performance artist, David Garibaldi, continues his grand mission to benefit charities and non-profits across the nation, one performance piece at a time. “Art of the Car Starring Garibaldi” will be the artist’s gracious return to the California Automobile Museum on Friday, Nov. 4.

The museum’s annual fundraising gala featured Garibaldi in 2014, but this year’s performance may have a more palatial feel to it as Garibaldi’s repertoire has grown to include performances in Cuba, Madison Square Garden and most notably, the White House.

Executive Director of the California Automobile Museum, Delta Pick Mello, was not around in 2014, which is reason enough to share her enthusiasm for Friday’s sold-out event.

“We are thrilled to have the talented David Garibaldi support the Museum and join us for our annual gala,” said Mello.  “With his amazing passion and drive, David has helped to raise more than $1.7 million for nonprofits and charities through his high-energy performance and art.”

This year, the “Bid for a Cause” will fund a large-scale mural for the exterior of the Museum’s building. The artist selected for this project is internationally known Shaun Burner, who focuses on mural work and large-scaled paintings mostly working with acrylics and spray enamel.

Along with this year’s visual art, the evening’s festivities are set to include delicious farm-to-fork cuisine by Diane Wilkinson Catering, artisan cocktails, live entertainment by Ken Koenig and Spare Parts Band, and a silent and LOUD auction (including the art that David produces during his performance). Proceeds from this fabulous fundraising event support the Museum’s many community and education programs and engaging special exhibits.
