Art Auction

The Art Auction will be held on Saturday May 17th, 2014. The blind auction will run throughout the day in the art gallery in the back of the hall, and will wrap up at 5:30PM  Interested parties must sign up for a bidder/paddle number and then can begin placing blind bids on the art they are interested in. 

Art that does not receive 3 bids will sell for the highest offer at 5:30PM, and ones that do get at least 3 bids will be placed in the live auction that begins at 6:30PM in convention hall room B.  Writer, Ken Kristensen, will be helping emcee the auction so if you are a Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth fan, this will be a fun chance to hang out with Ken and hopefully buy some art!  There will be a cash bar in the room, and hopefully a number artists that submitted their works to the auction in attendance.
