Hey Oshkosh and those of you coming to visit. Check out the Underground. Personally, I have never heard of this until I noticed that there was a local art auction taking place on Saturday, January 18th from 2:00-5:00 PM at 321 Market St. in Oshkosh.
The Underground is located in a basement right next to the sundial on the square downtown, hence underground. They offer events that you might not see anywhere else. The Underground was created to make space for your dreams to become a reality. They feature many local artists, as well as touring bands that offer live art and music, performance art, interactive projects, open mic night, gallery space, spoken word and poetry, creative workshops, individual and group art classes, kids activity days, studio space, community-minded get-togethers, a place to hang out and even supplies to use. It is completely funded by donations and individuals working toward the same goal of creating a community based placed to enjoy the arts.
The art at this auction will go to the highest bidder! You never know, you might be walking away with a high quality, fine art piece for a very reasonable price. Proceeds will be going toward the UnderGround.
Artists featured in the auction are all local, and many have held exhibitions in galleries in the area. Previews of some art will be posted to the event website but there will be many works that will only be seen the day of the auction. If you are not able to attend the event, but you would like to place a bid on a certain item, you should email the undergound directly and inquire.
