Habitat for Humanity Victoria has pooled the talents of more than 100 local artists for an online auction of their original creations — all of them made using doors.

Artists were given vouchers for a door selling for $100 or less at one of Habitat’s ReStores, and then got to work turning it into a piece of art.

More than one hundred local artists have poured their talent and skill into a stellar collection of original artwork in support of Habitat for Humanity Victoria’s affordable homeownership program! Since March, these community-minded individuals have transformed a wide range of doors from the Habitat ReStore into unique works of art which will be auctioned online starting May 28th. ​With a wide range of sizes, styles and techniques, there is bound to be something to suit everyone’s taste.

Not sure if this is a reliable source but it’s interesting and the story has been repeated many times:

“..when Queen Victoria, nicknamed the “famine queen" in Ireland, died, the Irish were told to paint their doors black in mourning. In rebellion, they painted them in bright colours...”: https://www.livemint...9579687205.html
