Welcome to the Morning Buzz, a catch-up on interesting happenings around the city and country and a quick guide to what (and who) to keep your eyes on. We'll be here, first thing every weekday, to get you going. Here's what's buzzing this morning:
1. "for remorse" by Eric Cox
You have until 10 p.m. tonight to nab an original by Eric Cox. The local painter kicked off the Facebook auction for his painting, "for remorse", on Monday, and he'll take bids until tonight. The painting is 17.5-by-12 inches and is oil, resin, wax pencil, spray paint, on wood. Check out the auction action here.
2. How to Lead a Creative Life
