Historically, this is our biggest fundraiser, says the librarys Kelly Shortandqueer. Its a great way to connect with local artists and zinesters. Plus, every year I end up going home with something new usually a piece of art though I think Im running out of room on my walls.
This is the first year that Sent(a)mental Studios will share the auctions rewards, which will help Scholinski continue to build his memorial to GLBTIQA suicide victims and survivors, as well as host open-studio events for youth. Ive always opened my studio unofficially to youth, he says, adding that his goal is to try to help young people reclaim their strangled creative voices. In addition to the open studios, Scholinski officially helps facilitate six youth-suicide groups in the metro area.
The silent auction is from 7 to 9 p.m. and includes live music by Patrick Porter. Get details at www.denverzinelibrary.org/2010-silent-auction.
