Gala Art Auction

No pick of the day today. Instead, here’s a heads up about a fundraiser that is being held at the MacKenzie Art Gallery on Friday, Oct. 25. This is an annual event that includes entertainment, refreshments and live/silent auctions. Typically there’s a theme, and this year is no exception. Riffing on the famous Shakespeare romantic comedy, the theme in 2013 is “A Mid Autumn Night’s Dream”.

The MacKenzie has also apparently joined forces with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame this year as well. The gala gets going at the gallery at 6:30 p.m., and tickets are $90 for MacKenzie and SSHF members and $100 for non-members.

To give you some costume ideas in the vein of gods, goddesses, parahumans and whatnot here’s the promo for the classic 1935 Warner Bros.’s production of Shakespeare’s play which starred James Cagney, Olivia DeHavilland, Mickey Rooney and many other well known actors:
