(ART) The actual Artist Trust Art Auction (on Sunday) is a great way to raise money for a good cause, but it's 120 bucks a pop. Art fans of more modest means will attend the pre-party at Consolidated Works instead, for a sneak preview of the 200 works in the auction, plus music, dance, and a literary lounge, including doubles trapeze by Curly Burly, aerial dance by the Cabiri, and fashion performance by Hipposchemes. (Consolidated Works, 500 Boren Ave N, 467-8734 ext 16. 7–10 pm, $15.) JEN GRAVES
