The Art Social @ Home
Celebrate with us, virtually!

OCTOBER 15, 2020
Streaming at 7:00 – 8:00 PM

We’re looking forward to the days when we can all get together again, but in the meantime we’re finding new ways to celebrate! We hope you’ll join us for this virtual fundraising event to help raise critical funds for our region’s arts and cultural organizations, which like so many others, have been rocked by the pandemic and need our help now more than ever.

Our silent auction, full of exciting arts experiences and one-of-a-kind works of art, will open soon.

Congratulations to our 2020 Arts Inspiration Honorees: Elizabeth Normen, Paul Eddy, and Deloitte!
