New York based art enthusiasts should make their way to the Good World Bar in Manhattan tomorrow, Tuesday the 11th, at 10 PM EST. What's the gig? A benefit for The Thing, historic art/media lab and community site. Recently bullied by connectivity provider Verio, The Thing is bouncing back with a celebratory party that is also the launch of a online auction -- artists like O100101110101101.org, BEIGE, Ellen Harvey, Christoph Draeger, Vuk Cosic have donated works. Party attendees will enjoy visuals, DJs, and drinks (proceeds go to the Thing) -- so come downtown to raise a glass and a bid for the Thing. Online auction begins Tuesday. - Rachel Greene
