Come As You Art Fundraiser tonight


The Friends of the Art Center will be hosting their second annual Come As You Art fundraiser at the Waterloo Center for the Arts on Friday.

The evening kicks off at 7:00 p.m. with live music provided by Milk and Honey.  Patrons are encouraged to dress as their favorite artist or artwork and mingle among the 'legends' of the art world!

Tickets are $25/person or $40/couple and include complimentary appetizers, cash bar, live art demonstrations, silent auction, and the opportunity to participate in a unique art sale.

Over 100 canvases have been painted, sculpted and transformed by local celebrities, artists and students.  Patrons may purchase 5 chances at 6"x6" canvases given out at random for $100 (or $25 a piece) or wait until after the auction at which time they will be allowed to select their own canvases at $35 a piece.  Patrons may also buy 3 chances at 10"x10" canvases for $100 (or $50 a piece) or $65 a piece after the auction.

All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Waterloo Center for the Arts' educational art programs, exhibits, and collections.
