78th Street Studios. 1300 West 78th Street, Cleveland “Art Fur Animals-10th Anniversary.” Open 7-10pm. Cleveland’s funnest benefit hits 10 this year. Combining two of many people’s favorite things — art and animals — with an affordable ticket price, Friends of the Cleveland Kennels’ Art Fur Animals has been packing in the crowds now for a decade. Taking place again at the 78th Street Studios, the event will feature all the elements attendees have come to know and love: the ceramic dogs creatively painted by area artists sold at the end of the evening in a live auction; the paintings, prints, photos, jewelry, and other contributions from artists and area merchants available in the silent auction; and of course, a room packed with animal lovers — and even, usually, a few dogs. This year’s Art Fur Animals will feature a limited edition commemorative print by local artist/animal lover Derek Hess, music from DJ Funk Schway, and channel 19 reporter Dawn Kendrick as emcee. It’ll also have a batch of celebrity bartenders including the Burning River Roller Girls.Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door, which includes light appetizers and two drink tickets. New this year is the $100 V.I.P. ticket, which also offers special appetizers and bar service in a private lounge, a souvenir glass, and a 6pm auction preview.
