If you ever needed a good excuse to go and buy some locally printed posters for your home, now is the perfect opportunity: The Friends of Mike Amann group is putting on a benefit for their beloved colleague, Mike Amann — owner of BLDG creative refuge and gallery, Covington arts advocate and all-around nice guy — who’s been battling stage four colon cancer since late last year.
Artists from around the country have donated poster prints, originals and other pieces concealed in a $20 “mystery tube.” All proceeds from art sales and 20 percent of the evening’s food and drink sales will assist the Amann family in offsetting medical expenses.
Thursday. Free. Arnold’s Bar and Grill, 210 E. Eighth St., Downtown, bldgrefuge.com.
