Regional force/source for emerging art, Soap Factory hosts a blind fundraiser that promotes the value and gut check of art for its own sake. The rules: one size, one price, no names, 200+ pieces from national and local artists.
This fundraiser for Soap Factory is party lottery, part opening, all fun.
All art is signed (on back) to be revealed post-buy. Tonight's pre-sale party has fundraising tickets for $35. Friday morning all works are on display, sold or not, 9 am to noon. What is unclaimed goes for $99 and walks out with you. And last year, competition for buying was fierce.
