Art Dash: Ready, Set, Gogh!
The seventh annual 2024 Art Dash is scheduled for Thursday, March 21, at The Cargill Room. Tickets will go on sale in early 2024.
If you are interested in sponsoring Art Dash, please contact Director of Community Engagement Hope Hembd at email@example.com.
ABOUT THE EVENT: Art Dash brings together local artists and community members in a celebration of creativity, beauty and connection. Everyone who buys a $100 ticket is guaranteed a piece of art – which one depends on how fast you can claim it. All of the art is worth at least $150, and the proceeds from this event support our ever-increasingly vital mission, so you can’t lose!
Where else can you get a piece of original art as a thank you for your $100 donation?
HOW IT WORKS: Your ticket buys you a spot in the Dash. After a preview of the art, we’ll start randomly drawing numbers, three at a time. When your number is called, you’ll dash to the piece you want. If someone claims your top pick before you do, you’ll need to make a different choice. Depending on when your number is called and what pieces are available at that point, you may get your top pick or you may need to select a second or third choice.
Even though these are serious works of art, the Dash itself is meant to be a lighthearted competition. Plus, it’s all for a good cause, so we recommend you have a game plan and an attitude of openness and surprise. You are bound to end up with the piece of art you were meant to have!
If you’d like to support the Franciscan Spirituality Center but are not interested in receiving artwork, please consider purchasing a Spectator ticket. As a thank you for your $50 donation, we’ll invite you to the gathering to watch the fun, cheer on your favorite “dashers” and artists, and have a chance to win door prizes. The evening also will feature a wine pull – another fun way to support us! The FSC is a 501(3)c non-profit organization; your donation for a Spectator ticket is tax deductible as allowed by law.
Whether you are looking to build your art collection, need a unique gift idea or just want to support the FSC, we’d love for you to join us.
We add pictures of the art pieces as they are donated, so please check back often to see what you can dash for at the event.
