“Luck of the Draw 8: When Art Attacks!”

Get art before it gets you at “Luck of the Draw 8: When Art Attacks!” DiverseWorks’ annual fund-raiser features a raffle-style sale of works by more than 200 national and international artists. Ticket holders draw a number to determine their place in line for the selection process. This year’s event is zombie-themed, so participants will weigh their options amidst decor meant to incite fright. But with work by artists such as Floyd Newsum and Shepard Fairey up for grabs, most will already be fearing what they might miss out on. Don’t, though — there’s plenty of quality offerings from up-and-comers like Rene Cruz, Emily Sloan and Maria Guzman. You can also buy a party-only ticket and enjoy free, bottomless libations. 6:30 p.m. DiverseWorks, 1117 East Freeway. For tickets and information, call 713-223-8346 or visit www.diverseworks.org. $25 to $250.
