InLiquid is an arts organization that has been giving back to Philadelphia’s creative community for 15 years. The non-profit will celebrate this milestone by hosting their annual silent auction and benefit event this Saturday, Feb. 8 at Crane Arts (1400 N American St.) inside the Ice Box Project Space.

This year’s theme The Art Of… focuses on “celebrating the artistry of food, fashion and the visual arts.”

With each year, this celebrated event brings in a larger, more diverse group. This festive reception will showcase a plethora of Philadelphia’s incredible art talent. Original work by over 200 painters, sculptors, photographers, and jewelry makers will be up for silent auction. This includes works by 36kolks, Nancy E.F. Halbert, Drew Leshko, Nikolay Milushev, Amy Orr, Hiro Sakaguchi, Zaman and many more. Selected jurors will be choosing the top three artists to create a special, limited edition print for the event's sponsors and attendees.

The event will be hosted by Maria Papadakis with special guest appearances by local Top Model finalist Cory Wade Hindorff and Project Runway-winning designer Dom Streater. Let’s not forget the incredible live performances by Liberty City Drag and Burlesque. Enjoy refreshments and bites from Philadelphia Distilling Company, Philadelphia Brewing Company, 13th Street Caterers, J. Scott Catering, Tim Bellew Food, and Birchtree Catering.

Tickets for the event are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. For more information on tickets, the First Friday Young professionals Party, and the VIP Preview, please visit inliquid.org.
