The 8th Annual Financial Plus Cool City Art Auction takes place this Friday (March 25) in downtown Flint.

It's sort of a cross between a silent auction and a pub crawl.  Enjoy and bid on art at six different locations all within easy walking distance.  Food, refreshments and music at all locations.  The event starts at 5 pm and ends at 10 pm.  Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased at any Financial Plus Credit Union location or at any of the participating organizations.  Participating organizations are:

Greater Flint Creative Alliance

Flint Hand Made

VSA Arts of Genesee County

Buckham Gallery

Art at the Market

Greater Flint Arts Council

Friday night tickets are $30.  Auction items cover the whole spectrum of price ranges, so just about anyone can bid on some art!  Support the arts in Flint, have a great time and find out how cool Flint can be.  More information is available at (810) 238-ARTS or www.geneseefun.com
