Now in its seventh year, Art 4 Shelter is a free party where revelers can score affordable art while raising funds for a great cause: Simpson Housing Services. Show up at Le Meridien Minneapolis during social hour to enjoy hundreds of anonymous artworks on display. At 7 p.m., patrons can take any piece off the walls they’d like to purchase. Check the back for the signature to see if your piece is by a familiar name or an up-and-comer. All 5" by 7" works are $35 (the cost of one night in the shelter). Bigger works will also be for sale this year, with 8" by 10" pieces priced at $90 and 11" by 14" works setting you back $175. New art will show up on the walls throughout the night, and food and drink round out the evening. Before the big event, you can check out some of the pieces on display at Made Here in downtown Minneapolis or at the Galleria in Edina.
