My Tokyo: 5th Annual Benefit Art Auction
Times are tough for small galleries and arts organizations. This we all know. But that doesn't mean you have to pour massive amounts of money into purchasing a work; you can also celebrate and support art at this fundraising party. Midway Contemporary Art is a nonprofit that focuses on showcasing work by incredible artists who are newer or haven't been given a lot of attention. Current exhibits include local found-art/collage artist Isa Newby Gagarin and Madrid-based artist Patricia Esquivias's ongoing video project. My Tokyo will open with a VIP reception at 6 p.m. hosted by Mark Wheat from the Current. Guests can enjoy cocktails and check out art up for auction. The drinks continue to flow at 8 p.m. when the general reception begins. The live and silent auctions will continue as partiers enjoy appetizers from the 318 Café. After the auctions end, sound artists Beatrix*JAR and Black Lacquer will provide late-night tunes. Visit www.midwayart.org for tickets or call 612.605.4504 for more info. Proceeds benefit Midway Contemporary Art.
