Turn on Your Love Light

Considering that so many of them are starving, artists always seem to be front and center when it comes to donating works for a cause. There’s a lot of controversy about this — among artists in particular — but sometimes you just can’t say no. Case in point: AIGA’s Love Light Lounge Heart Art Auction 2011, where original artworks, handmades and more, many inspired by a heart theme, go on the block against a swanky backdrop with a Mad Men theme. “There will be incredible art, sculpture, handmade books and jewelry,” says spokeswoman Marian Halliday of the auction. “And we’ll be transforming Casselman’s into a period-type place. We already have some great designs for the interiors.”

The live lounge-lizard music and silent auction, with food, drink and a chance to find the Valentine’s gift of a lifetime, all benefit Project Angel Heart and AIGA Colorado; you’ll also be able to pose for pictures, and ‘60s-style dress-to-impress costume is encouraged. The Love Light Lounge will be hosted at Casselman’s Bar and Venue, 2620 Walnut Street, beginning at 6 p.m.; admission is $20 to $25. Go to www.heartartdenver.com for more information.
