Do you have BW covers taped on your walls like centerfolds? Do you cast lustful glances at BW covers when you walk by them on the street? On Wednesday, Nov. 18, BW will host a support group for you closeted cover lovers.
At our annual Boise Weekly Cover Auction, you'll have the opportunity to bid on--and invite back to your place for coffee--every original piece of art that has given you come-hither looks from the window of our little red boxes over the past year. Were you beguiled by Ben Wilson's whimsical Neko Finds Her Dad's Record Collection? Were you in love with Benjamin Love's Suffix? This is your chance to put your money where you heart is.
And if the thought of being in the same room with 51 of your beloveds makes your palms sweat, don't fret. We've got plenty of hooch from O'Michael's Pub to take the edge off and plenty of food from Smoky Mountain Pizza to sober you up. All of the proceeds--which, over the last eight years, have amounted to more than $75,000--are donated back to the arts community as grants. So join your fellow cover lovers, the Boise Rock School and auctioneer Johnna Wells for an evening of giddy bidding. You might get lucky.
Wednesday, Nov. 18, Doors at 5 p.m., bidding at 6 p.m., FREE, Idaho State Historical Museum, 610 N. Julia Davis Drive, 208-334-2120, idahohistory.net.
