Tickets on sale for Art Dash (via Zoom)

READY, SET, GOGH: You don’t even have to leave your living room to dash for original art during our fourth annual Art Dash

Our signature FUNdraiser will be presented in a virtual format on Thursday, March 25, 2021.

Art Dash brings together local artists and community members in a celebration of creativity, beauty and connection. If you’ve always wanted to attend but couldn’t because of distance, now is your chance to join the party. (Most of the available pieces can be shipped if you are unable to pick up your winning artwork. Please call 608-791-5295 for more information.)

Where else can you get a piece of original art as a thank you for your $100 donation?

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 $100 and the proceeds of this event support our ever-increasingly vital mission, so you can’t lose! We have 90 pieces of art available (please scroll down to view art).

HOW IT WORKS: A $100 ticket buys you a spot in the Dash. We’ll send you a link to the Zoom gathering, where we bring together artists and other guests in the race for art. We’ll start randomly drawing names, three at a time, at 6:30 p.m. As your name is called, you’ll indicate (in the chat function) which piece you want. If someone claims your top pick before you do, you’ll need to make a different choice. Depending on when your name 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. We’ll send you a check sheet of the art in advance so you can keep track during the Dash.

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 Zoom gathering to watch the fun, cheer on your favorite “dashers” and artists, and have a chance to win door prizes.
