Culture on the Cheap
The Greenpoint 100 Auction is Today!
Although I will be at work during most of the festivities, here is the itinerary I received from the co-presidents of Friends of the Greenpoint Library:
The event will begin at 11:00 a.m. Judging will be from 12:30-1:30 pm… We will be taking down names of potential buyers (3 per work) from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Starting at 2:00 p.m. the actual sale will take place. If the first person on the list is not present, the second person on the list will have the opportunity to buy and so on.
They also need volunteers to lend a hand with the following:
Installation and set-up: 10:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m.
Refreshments table: 11:00 a.m. -2:30 p.m.
Distribution of art to buyers: 2:00 p.m. -2:30 p.m.
Break-down/clean-up: 3:00 p.m. -3:30p.m.
$25.00 is a very small price to pay for not only a work of art, but to help our local library. Besides, who wouldn’t want this hanging on his or her wall? The woman who took my contribution recognized the dude on the couch immediately; he was sleeping on her stoop that morning.
