Tomorrow: Say goodbye to the Lab and Andrew Novick's 8,000 objects

The end of the Lab, at least as we know it, is nigh. And nothing could make that more apparent than a garage sale, where, yes, everything must go! But count on Adam Lerner to take his little Lakewood contemporary art museum out with a bang, before proceeding to restructure and merge with the Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver.

In the meantime, kick off your Saturday morning at the Lab Garage Sale, where the usual suspects -- furniture, fixtures, equipment and electronics -- will be for sale at cut-rate prices, along with the secretive come-on of "random silly Lab stuff," during standard garage-sale hours between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. And plan to return in the evening for an event to remember: The closing party for The Astounding Problem of Andrew Novick, which will include live bidding on selected items from the exhibit -- essentially an astonishing showcase of stuff assembled by obsessive collector Novick that caught our eye when it opened, and even that of CBS's Steve Hartman. The event's from from 6 to 9 p.m. Along with the auction, there will be a cereal and cupcake bar provided by the Shoppe and a brand new, limited-edition 100-page show catalogue crammed with photographs. Admission is $5 at the door; the Lab is at 404 S. Upham Street in Belmar. Log on to the Lab's website or call 303-934-1777 for details.
