Grab your own piece of Andy

Fri, Jan 30, 2009

Here's your chance to take a small piece of Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms with you before the exhibition is gone for good. During our free and open-to-all closing party on Saturday, Feb. 14 from 5-7 PM, we'll be auctioning off some Warhol goodies, including two of the four-foot-high High Street banners (see below). UPDATE: Handling the auctioneer duties this evening will be NBC4 meteorologist and all around art fan, Marshall McPeek. We'll have a special celebrity auctioneer taking your bids for these one-of-a-kind items (which will also include a life-size Andy cutout). The fun begins around 5, there will be snacks and a cash bar. Proceeds for the auction go toward Wexner Center Education programs.

The auction will begin around 6, leaving you plenty of time to get either a) get to dinner somewhere else (boo), b) take in the Warhol exhibition one last time (yay), or c) stick around for the theater, film, and music events happening later this evening at the Wex (huzzah). All in all, it'll be a packed evening of activity at the Wex, a rousing send-off in true Warhol style.
