Folks looking for affordable art will certainly find it at the return of Art 4 Shelter, a one-night-only art party benefiting a good cause. The evening will boast over 1,000 original pieces, mostly sized 5"x7", on sale for a mere $30 (one hundred 8"x10" works priced at $150 will also be up for grabs). Pieces will be signed on the back only, so you may find yourself bringing home an Alec Soth or an emerging talent. Come early, as art lovers will be perusing potential purchases starting at 6 p.m., with new pieces added to the walls throughout the event as items sell. All proceeds from the celebration will benefit Simpson Housing Services. According to the organization, it costs $30 for them to house one person for a single night. Last year's benefit raised around $40,000, equaling more than 1,300 nights for those in need.
