Do- and Feel-good opportunity of the week
Visual Aids hosts its annual benefit auction, Postcards from the Edge at Metro Pictures this Saturday from 11AM - 7PM. With only a $5 suggested admission, and works priced at $75, it's well worth your time and money for this important cause. Some of the big names of note in the literally HUNDREDS of artists who are donating their work: Olaf Breuning, Louise Lawler, and Kiki Smith just to name a few. But interesting of note-- buyers will not be informed of the names of the artists that they are purchasing until after sale. Talk about evening out the playing field, and a great opportunity to let art be about art itself, and not necessarily name influenced even though this blogger just dropped some. Well worth your while.
