“Disaster doesn't sort us out by preferences; it drags us into emergencies that require we act, and act altruistically, bravely, and with initiative in order to survive or save the neighbors...mutual aid and pleasure are linked, that the ties that bind are grounds for celebration as well as obligation.” 

― Rebecca Solnit, A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster

Join us this Friday for a one-night fundraiser and silent art auction to benefit relief and long-term efforts in México and Puerto Rico.

There will be art, music, food, and libations donated by local and international artists, musicians, and local businesses. All proceeds will go to relief causes for the recent earthquakes in México and hurricanes in Puerto Rico (specifics of the local grassroots organizations will be given the night of the auction). 

There are over 60 participating local and international artists! The silent auction will include installation, sculpture, works on paper, and prints. Publications, artist books, custom clothing, and fine goods will also be for auction. 

Silent auction will close promptly at 9PM.

Serving Buzzbox premium cocktails and beer provided by 5 Rabbit Cerveceria.
