Take a second to close the paper you're holding and look at this week's cover. Would you hang that local artwork in your house? How about the art that appeared on any of the past covers this year? If your answer is yes, don't miss a Boise Weekly Cover Auction preview night at Evermore Prints on Thursday, Oct. 5, when art buffs will get a chance to check out the 52 pieces of art that have graced BW's cover in the last year before bidding at our annual Cover Art Auction on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Visual Arts Collective. In addition to getting a sneak peek at the all-local artwork, attendees can munch on snacks and try cocktails from a no-host bar catered by Press & Pony. Plus, the art will stay up until Oct. 15, and auction bids will go toward the artists, art grants and BW journalism—what's not to love?
