Daughter of 'Art on the Corner' founder is selling his work for good cause

CLIFTON, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The founder of Art on the Corner passed away in August this year. His daughter is trying to keep his legacy alive.

Dave Davis has created thousands of paintings and sculptures. Most can be found around the Western Slope, like the eagle outside the Alpine Bank building in downtown Grand Junction.

Just before he died he started a nonprofit to help aspiring artists.

Starting Friday, November 30, his daughter Amanda is selling off some of Davis' art to raise money to keep his house and art studio running.

"He was amazing… he was my biggest fan, but he was my dad, so that's no big deal, but like 50 people came up and said, 'every day he would just encourage me and tell me, you know, 'hey you got this.'' And I couldn't believe out of all the people in their lives, he was their biggest fan too,” said Amanda Davis, daughter of Art on the Corner founder Dave Davis.

The event will be happening all weekend long, you can also donate on their Gofundme page, by clicking here.

His home and studio is located on 619 33 Road in Clifton. They are open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until December 2.
