The Imaginary Million is back by popular demand! After taking a hiatus since the inaugural event in 2012, the non-traditional artist auction is back this Friday December 9th. This year's event features 100 pieces by 100 different local Atlanta artists, a dance party, and cocktails. Each participating artist receives ten thousand dollars in imaginary money to bid on submitted pieces. “This event is designed to subvert the traditional auction and to empower artists as both the producers and patrons in the arts economy,” according to the WonderRoot event page. Only participating artists will be able to bid in the live and silent auction but their is a consignment room where attendees can purchase pieces with real money. Come out to support some great local artists, grab a cocktail and dance the night away!
Parking is is five dollars. Carpooling is highly recommended. General admission is $25 and the event runs from 8pm until 11pm. For more info check out the WonderRoot event page here.
