buy art + need a place to set your beer?

If you are a collector/lover of art and are unable to attend the Change the Truth Annual Friendraiser/Fundraiser on March 14th in Kansas City, fear not! You can still view the kids' paintings and even bid on them. Just go to this website and please, knock yourself out! Bid high, bid often.

Here are the two most popular pieces so far:

But don't overlook these gems:

And now, drum roll, please….

Debuting here on the  blog right now at this very moment are the brand spankin' new, first ever Botticino marble coasters/tiles featuring work by SMK artists. These little lovelies are now available (and will be for sale at the event on March 14th). They are 4" x 4" with a cork backing. Optional heavy duty adhesive hangers make them easy to hang on the wall…. or you can use them in a functional way by setting drinks on them. They are $15.00 each.

Feast your eyes!

PS - It is not too late yo get your ticket(s) for the March 14th evening 'o fun at Boulevard Brewing Co. Please go here to buy tickets. We've got pizza, beer, African drumming and dancing, the new CTT film and loads of cool auction items you'll want to take home. Also lots of good company!
