Public service announcement: $250 gets you into Smack Mellon’s annual fundraiser, and you’re guaranteed to take home artwork determined by a random drawing. It’s a great deal: you’re supporting Smack Mellon and you get to take home some decent art. If you bet on the winning horse, it increases your odds of getting the artwork you want because you get first pick. The roster of donating artists is impressive, and the silent auction includes work by Ida Applebroog, Ellen Harvey, Vito Acconci, David Ellis, Eve Susman, Dan Zeller, Tom Otterness, and more. Smack Mellon’s mission is to support emerging, under-recognized, and female artists by providing studio space, exhibition opportunities, equipment and technical assistance in the realization of ambitious projects.
