Editor’s note: This is one in a series of individual profiles of participants in this year’s “Bad Art by Good People” fundraiser.

The polls are now open for the 10th annual Bad Art by Good People fundraiser, presented by the Champaign County Arts Council.

The tongue-in-cheek competition features non-artist celebrities creating works of art and campaigning for the public’s votes for their artwork.

Today’s featured artist is Greg Harvey. He is a lawyer at MacGillivray, Estes, & Harvey LLP.

He received his BA from Wittenberg; his MBA from Mount Vernon Nazarene; and his J.D. from Western Michigan.

His organizations include Champaign County Bar Association; Logan County Bar Association; Harmony 8 F & AM; Ohio Bar Association; OSBA; Champaign County Historical Society & Museum; Champaign and Logan County Drug & Alcohol Board; Skywarn (NWS)

Harvey enjoys working on vehicles (Honda and Acura) and weather spotting (National Weather Service) and tennis.

His artwork is a painting of his family cat named Cherry.

The public can vote for their favorite artwork using PayPal on the Arts Council’s website, www.champaigncountyartscouncil.org. Votes can also be cast with cash, check or credit card at the Arts Council, 119 Miami St., Urbana.

The office is open Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Watch the Urbana Daily Citizen during the weeks leading up to the May 7 dinner for profiles on each artist and photos of the artists with their creations.

A limited number of tickets are available for the dinner and auction, which will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 7, at the VFW Hall, 220 E. Court St. Tickets are $25 each and include a catered dinner and dessert.

The “Bad Art” will be auctioned after the dinner, and all proceeds will benefit the Arts Council.
