Local artists.

Unique design.

Dinner-ready canvas?

Yes, this year’s Pueblo Arts Alliance fundraiser, Backstage Pass, will hold a silent auction of local artist-designed 10 inch melamine plates from 7 to 11 p.m. Nov. 1 at El Pueblo History Museum, 301 N. Main Street..

These unique plates were painted by Diana LaMorris, Tom Latka, Jean Latka, Maria Lopez, Rita Pando, Radeaux, Riki Takaoka, Mo Valdez, Bonnie Waugh, Randy Wix and Ann Yeager Oreskovich.

The two design themes are black and white (with a smidgen of color), and birds.

Proceeds from this silent auction benefit the Pueblo Arts Alliance and the Creative Corridor.

What do they look like? Attend Backstage Pass to bid on these one-of-a-kind plates.

But it’s not just a chance to look at one-of-a-kind plates but also a spot for Dia de los Muertos face painting, sugar skull decorating and altar building.

There also will be live music from main act Runaway Grace’s Mitch Secora and Jake Gallegos, with Becca Klock. Opening act is Sisters and Strings.

Cost is $10. Group sales are available.
