$100 doesn't buy you much these days. But at the Soap Factory $99 Sale
, you can take home an original work by artists such as Wing Young Huie, Alec Soth, Ute Bertog, and Beatrix Reinhardt for less than a Benjamin Franklin. It's a blind sale, so you won't know who the artist is until after you purchase the piece. The Friday night event (7 to 10 p.m.) is $20 and includes an after-party. Shop for free the "Morning After" (9 a.m. to noon), when remaining art will be just $66.
