For the Love of Pixar is an art show and tribute blog designed to highlight the Pixar Universe and raise funds for charities. Our goal is to promote young and old artists, celebrate the popular films, and inspire creativity for social good. Like Mike Wazowski, we believe everyone deserves a second chance to live out their dream and realize their potential. 

On Saturday, February 27, 2016, For the Love of Pixar returns and will unite Pixar enthusiasts from all over for its second charity event. The benefit art show will take place in San Diego at 4694 Cape May Ave. from 2 pm- 8:30 pm. An opening reception will be held on Friday, February 26th from 6 pm- 9:30 pm. Artists eager to participate in this event may now complete the online entry form. Please inquire early to reserve your spot in the exhibition. The deadline to drop-off, mail-in, or arrange for artwork pick-up and submission is Tuesday, February 16th.  

"Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist can come from anywhere."
– Anton Ego, Ratatouille

But all of this is about more than just showing artwork in a large room for all to see. This art show and blog also exist to encourage people to use their creative gifts to help someone else in need of the basics like food, water, and shelter. In other cases, the sale of someone's creative work is helping mobilize rescue efforts in oppressed nations or provide funding for someone in need of recovery. At the core, we exist to stage comebacks for the underdogs around us.
