The recession has hit arts organizations hard, especially bare-bones operations like Eyedrum. The alternative space for art and music, almost 11 years old, hopes to drum up some cash with an auction Friday night, Aug. 14.
More than 150 artists, names listed on its web site, have donated works. You may also bid on all sorts of goods and services, from yoga sessions and restaurant coupons to clothing and interior design consultancies. It will be a festive evening, with lots of musical entertainment and dancing.
Doors open at 7 p.m. The auction starts at 9:15 p.m. $10 admission. 290 MLK, Jr. Drive, near Oakland Cemetery. 404-522-0655.
