Tonight is the Night of 1,000 Drawings, for which you pay $10 to gain entry to Artists’ Space, where there will be an open bar (from 7:30 to 9pm) and lots and lots of drawings–more than 1,000, by hundreds of hot, young, emerging artists. The drawings are priced to sell at only $35 to $60. They’d make a weird present for someone, but a great one if you want some art for yourself. This event sounds terrific.
This reminds me of an art magazine I used to work for, on whose cover we once listed “The Top Ten Drawers of 2006” and my friends thought they were comedians because they said things like, “Is ‘Brass-knobbed’ one of them? What about ‘Vanity’? Also what about ‘Pine’?” They were right, though. What were your favorite drawers of 2007? Mine is one with an attached mirror I got off Craigslist.
