The Prequel project is a mentoring program for recently graduated artists. The eight artists have their project show at S1.
Prequel has done a great job with a very small amount of money, Portland-style. There is no cost to the artists to participate. They received a Precipice Fund grant for 2015. But Precipice grants are one year only. They are working to independently fund 2016.
As part of that project funding strategy, they have an auction this evening. Each artist has proposed an about 3 hour project in which you can participate with the artist. They all sound fun and some are humorous - prequelpdx.org/artist-date-auction-2015/
You can bid on them this evening while spending a little time in the S1 world, which is always recommended.
The artists speak about their work from 5PM-6. Bidding begins at 6. It's free to attend. And you should go.
