One Night Stand

"One Night Stand" has become a very popular fund raiser for Art From Scrap.
People paid up to $200 to get early entry to bid on about two hundred art
pieces. The art was donated by local artists as well as by celebrities.
All pieces were the same size and all pieces sold for $200. The catch? The
artist's name is not revealed until the piece is purchased. It is a great
leveler because the purchase is being made based on the quality of the art
rather than on the fame of the artist.
The event was held at the Brooks Institute gallery on Cota Street. People were
lined up in advance and packed the gallery when the doors opened. Most of the
pieces sold quickly. There will be a follow-up event this Friday to sell the
remaining pieces. After that, watch for the next "One Night Stand" next year!
