A silent auction in Ellsworth this weekend will help raise money for a world class piece of art.
7 artists from around the world are taking part in a symposium in Winter Harbor over the summer.
The sculptures they create will go to communities in Hancock and Washington counties.
A group is trying to raise $5,000 dollars to place one of them in Ellsworth.
Auction items range from paintings and furniture to handbags and even a diamond.
Tickets are $10.
The auction is from 5:30-8:00 P.M. Saturday at the Maine Grind in Ellsworth.
