Join Us for the Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction, 2018 Edition!


Since 2001, Boise Weekly has given up its most valuable piece of real estate—our cover—to artists each week. Once a year, we give the artists a double dose of love, auctioning off the original artworks, and giving a chunk of the proceeds to the artists.

This year, the annual Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction will take place at the Visual Arts Collective on Wednesday, Oct. 17. We'll fill the Garden City exhibition space with 52 weeks-worth of cover artwork, and proceeds from the auction will benefit the artists, the Boise Weekly Cover Auction Art Program and our own journalism efforts.

There will be a $15 cover charge to attend, which will be credited to any winning bids on art. The doors open at 5 p.m., the bidding starts at 6 p.m. sharp and the party ends at 9 p.m. There will be a no-host bar and appetizers from Bonefish Grill. You can purchase your ticket early here.

The VAC is a venue for people ages 21 and over, so please bring identification.
