This silent night might not be a holy one, but since it's filled with great art, who the hell cares? The University of New Mexico's Graduate Art Association will host its Seventh Annual Silent Art Auction on Friday, Dec. 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Harwood Art Center. You can come for the excitement of bidding on fantastic art by local artists. You can come for the tasty edibles provided by Albuquerque Catering. You can come for the live music by Casadimanza or for the print by an artist from the Tamarind Institute that will be raffled off.
Those are all very good reasons.
Another especially good reason to go is because money generated by the event will provide much-needed funding for student scholarships granted by the Graduate Art Association. UNM professors and graduate students donated all the work being auctioned. The Harwood is located at 1114 7th St. NW. For details, call (505) 242-6367.
