AHA! The Annual Hallwalls Auction

[FUNDRAISER] Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center has been providing aha! moments to this writer for going on 35 years. (The first, as a teenager, being the discovery of transvestite comediennes and They Might Be Giants; the latest being, as I write this, that “AHA!” is an acronym for “Annual Hallwalls Auction.”) For others, longer than that. Hallwalls marks its 43rd year in the contemporary art constellation with its annual fundraising auction on Thursday, May 31 at Asbury Hall in Babeville. Works by 40 artists—some local (such as Bruce Adams, whose work graces this week’s cover of The Public, and such as Richard Huntington, whose work is above) and some from elsewhere (such as Hallwalls co-founder Robert Longo)—will be auctioned live. There will be music by DJ Undersound and cocktails by Buffalo Bar Biddies. It is a fantastic evening, and every penny raised helps keeps the light on at one of the region’s essential cultural institutions. Read more and peruse the catalog at the Hallwalls website. Reserve your tickets there, too: $50 each, $90 a pair.
