Stan here at the basement recently entered a pretty cool fund raiser event called Art vs. Art.
Basically local artists have entered pieces into the competition. You can vote on 3 pieces you like the most (Stan's piece can be found here). The top 32 pieces will get auctioned off at the Vogue on Sept 26th. The cool part is, if they don't get auctioned for enough money they get destroyed by a spin on the "wheel of death".
If you are in the Indy area, check out the Vogue on Sept 26th. Should be a good time.
