Here at Boise Weekly, we pride ourselves on supporting local artists, something we've done since 2001 by choosing a piece of original art for our cover each week. Our readers enjoy the eye-catching images all year in print, and then each October we gather up works from the last twelve months and auction them off at a kick-ass Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction party. This year, the auction will take place Wednesday, Oct. 18, at El Korah Shrine and will feature 52 pieces of local art, a no-host bar and scrumptious bites from Bonefish Grill. Proceeds will benefit the artists, the Boise Weekly Cover Auction Art Grant Program and BW's investigative journalism mission. Plus, each guest's $15 entry fee will go toward his or her winning bid. Come on out to help us support the artists who make Boise beautiful!
