And for those of you out there wanting a wicked night on the town, and to support ArtsWells, we have a LIVE HUMAN AUCTION! Ambiguous Arts has hand picked Vancouvers most eligible bachelors and blachelorettes, teamed them up with some of the most creative dates around these parts (rickshaw rides, milkshakes, dinners, pottery classes), and we are throwing them on the Auction table!
