The Ocean of Blood, a sub-project of the Swimming Cities, are having a silent auction tonight to raise funds to sail 5 boats down the Ganges River in India. Here’s a snippet from the event listing:

The SWIMMING CITIES art collective is holding our first art auction fundraiser for our upcoming sculptural boat and performance project on the Ganges River, in India, 2010. The event will include the unveiling of the first finished boat prototype, an 18’x8′ hand-crafted stainless steel catamaran, powered by a motorcycle driven paddle wheel.

My “Thought Island: Active” will be available in the auction (I’m not in the artist list but it’ll be there, so will I after 9). Here are the event deets and map:
7:00 – 11:00 p.m. – art auction
11:00 – 1:00 a.m. – after (dance) party
