The best meat is BOOKMEAT

I’m a big fan of Side Street Projects. They offer services to the art community aimed at establishing artistic self reliance outside of the traditional Gallery System. Plus, they have a great podcast that cracks open the door on what goes on behind the scenes in the art world.

BookMeat is a fundraiser for Side Street Project.

Join LA’s most intriguing & celebrated artists, writers and curators for a most unusual silent auction. Each has contributed a book from their private collection that influenced their life’s work. Tucked inside each book — for the buyer’s eyes only — is an autograph and secret inscription from the contributor explaining the book’s significance. Most starting bids are $75.

I plan on participating. I hope to snag something nice for my library.
