Every year, Buddies welcomes hundreds of discerning art lovers and adventurous shoppers for an outrageous art auction unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Our live auction features work from dozens of our country’s foremost contemporary artists, while the Rock Hudson Memorial Tuck Shop offers an astounding collection of artist multiples and limited edition prints. We’ve also got a silent auction full of products and cultural experiences from a variety of local business. So there’s something for everyone at ArtAttack!
It all goes down at a punk rock art party with your host Johnnie Walker, auctioneer Charlene Nero, lots of surprise performances, tasty treats from Sassafraz, free beer (and a striptease) from the boys at Steamwhistle, and an afterparty with DJ Phil V.
