The Art F City Roast Auction and Awards at Postmasters February 17, 2014
This February 17th, get ready for The Art F City Art World Roast Auction and Awards (AFCAWRAaA): a night of crowning the worst and auctioning off the best. (Basically, it’s like the art prom but everyone is Carrie.) Prepare yourself for roasting and ass gadgetry; this year, our gilded awards will take the form of golden butt plugs. Public voting is open through midnight, February 14th, and our auction is underway on Paddle8.
We haven’t announced all the details yet, because we’re not sure if the person in the giant butt costume will be distributing awards and buttplugs or awards as buttplugs UPDATE 2/14: The awards will be buttplugs. In the meantime, here’s what we can tell you:
Jaimie Warren, the woman who has dressed up as a piece of lettuce, a flattened piece of pepperoni, and a lasagna will host. She will probably be wearing a costume.
We will have artwork and experiences available from artists such as Jeremy Bailey, Man Bartlett, Jay Batlle, Petra Cortright, Christian Chaize, Saul Chernick, Matthew Craven, Sara Cwynar, Jennifer Dalton, Ursula Endlicher, Carla Gannis, Christine Gedeon, Irena Jurek, Deborah Kass, Matthew Leifheit, Lisa Levy, Jose Lerma, Lauren Luloff, Jason McLean, Lorna Mills, Marilyn Minter, Ruben Natal-San Miguel, John Powers, William Powhida, Marsha Owett, Tom Sanford, Trey Speegle, Mike and Doug Starn, Russell Tyler, Michelle Vaughan, Aaron Williams and many more!
We’ll have online bidding with Paddle8, the esteemed online auction house.
We will have CK Swett from Heritage Auctions. If you’ve seen Swett in action, you know this: Of all the world’s charity auctioneers, in one hundred years only the name C.K. Swett will be remembered. According to NBC, he is the “The Mad-Hatter” of charity auctions.
Food! Possibly pork buns!
