Update: Click here to see all of the covers that will be in our 12th Annual Cover Auction.
With our 12th annual Boise Weekly Cover Auction, we continue our mission to support local artists.
Since its inception, the annual auction has raised more than $147,000 and made possible numerous public art works, children’s educational programs, gallery shows and exhibitions. Each week the cover of Boise Weekly features the work of a local artist who is paid for his or her contribution. Every fall we auction off the year’s work to raise money for a private grant, which Boise Weekly distributes to individual artists and arts organizations. For this year’s auction, proceeds from the sale of covers starting with May 1, 2013 will go to support Boise Weekly’s efforts to support long-form, investigative journalism.
Come hang out with us Wednesday, Nov. 20, 6 p.m. at Visual Arts Collective. Cover is $5.
You'll not only have a chance to score some sweet art, you'll also be supporting Boise Weekly, which supports local artists so they can make more sweet art. Circle of life, friends. Circle of life.
