Cover by Cover: Auctioning album cover inspired artwork to put tech in a Portland school


Cover by Cover: Auctioning album cover inspired artwork to put tech in a Portland school

Startups are pretty cool. Music is pretty cool. Art is definitely cool. But what happens if you put all of those things together to create something cooler? That’s just what Portland design shop The Brigade has done with an art exhibition to bring tech to a Portland elementary school.

The Cover by Cover Art Auction—held at The Cleaners in the Ace Hotel—will benefit James John Elementary. Not only is it a good cause. It’s a good cause that brings more tech into our schools.

You’re invited to a silent art auction curated by The Brigade & Deweywood to raise funds to bring interactive learning to James John Elementary. We asked our favorite artists to pay homage to their favorite album covers and will have over 20 works up for auction.

Besides, where else would you see Hank Williams hanging with KISS and the Beastie Boys?

The event takes place this Friday, May 24, beginning around 6PM. A donation of $10-20 per attendee is suggested.
