We cover a lot of things at Boise Weekly, but our favorite coverage is on the first page of the paper—that is, the cover. Each week since 2001, we have featured work by local artists in the most visible place we can. For just as long, we've been auctioning off those works at a special party for artists, art lovers and lovers of artists.
The 14th annual Boise Weekly Cover Auction is set for Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Owyhee Ballroom, complete with food, wine, beer and, of course, a once-a-year opportunity to bid on original local artwork. Artists receive 30 percent of the proceeds from sales with the remainder going toward the BW Cover Auction Grant program and to support BW's investigative journalism mission.
