Local online art mag BURNAWAY is holding an Art Crush Art Auction this Sat., Feb. 25, from 7-10 p.m. at 7 Stages in Little Five Points, as a benefit to raise money for the nonprofit.

Every month BurnAway.org features an article on a person or group involved in the Atlanta art scene, dubbing them an "art crush." For the Art Crush Auction, Atlanta photographers, painters, writers, gallery owners, etc., have volunteered to donate a personalized event or date with them to the highest bidder. WonderRoot's Chris Appleton is donating an afternoon with him that includes a Appleton-prepared vegan lunch and a trip to a Braves game. Other goods up for grabs include contributions from members of Dance Truck and artist Lucha Rodriguez, who will customize (or "Lucha-fy") anything of the bidder's choosing in her signature pink style.

How about an evening with the adorable Shara Hughes: "Drink a bottle of wine with Shara on the roof top deck of the Telephone Factory Lofts and then have Shara paint a portrait of you and her famed Boston Terrier, Chicken Nugget."

Beep Beep Gallery's Mark Basehore and James McConnell will "guide you or you can choose your own adventure from activities ranging from: wine at Beep with a private showing of the gallery, cornbread at Eats, drag lessons at Model T's, the claw game at Murder Kroger, popcorn at the Local followed by private Foosball lesson, cupcakes at Kibbee Gallery, shoplifting at Young Blood Gallery, and more!"

The highest bidder for Bland Hack (Julian Modugno and Jamie Hawkins-Gaar's artist collective) will earn a walk-on role in Bland Hack's next film, where the winner will have his or her head blown up on screen.

All of the 20-plus items up for auction can be previewed at BURNAWAY.
