Did you miss out on the art sales by MCAD and/or CVA? Or did you not want to shell out the dough for first-night tickets and not find anything when they went public the next day? Well, here’s a chance to redeem yourself. The University of Minnesota’s Department of Art hosts SHIFT tonight, a scholarship-fundraiser with free admission and all student art at a flat, affordable rate of $20. Faculty and staff work will also be on sale at prices negotiable with the artists, so bring your bartering game. All proceeds from the sale will go directly toward art scholarships for students attending the U of M. 6-8 p.m. Free.
