We know some of you guys think your sneakers are "pieces" and all, and that's fine. Money is meant to be spent. But just this once (we'll probably do it again), we're suggesting you take the shoe money and bid on something at Stoked Mentoring's Live Art Auction this Saturday at MILK Gallery in NYC. Here is the artwork available. We're talking Ruscha, Warhol, Schnabel, Matthew Barney, etc., so don't get haughty. Everything there will look better on your wall than whatever is tacked up now, and proceeds are split between Stoked's mentoring programs and the artists. Show up between 12-6pm to preview, and throw your paddles up at 8. We've got our eyes on that Chuck Close book, so don't screw us over like Cliff did Clair.
