The Alliance for Full Acceptance is holding a unique art auction called “Stix N’ Stonz” from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, June 20, at the Urban Outfitters on King Street.

The group is challenging up 40 artists to use popular Munny figures (blank canvas collectible dolls) to symbolize the power of abusive school-yard slang.

“This art show will not be for the faint of heart,” the release states. “Some pieces may be viewed as too provocative or offensive. Some artists may choose to embrace a word and put an empowering spin on it. The bottom line, our goal is to educate.”

The auction is also expected to promote the upcoming Reel Grits LGBT film festival.
