This year, the McColl Center for Art + Innovation is offering an afternoon event with cake & cocktails for the fall fundraiser. The hour long Ashes to Art event will take place on October 18 at 4 p.m. with drinks & sweets provided by Artist-in-Residence Leah Rosenberg (you may have heard about her long-ago-sold-out Color for the People series). Future Artist-in-Residence Juan William Chavez will speak on his work and his plans for his upcoming residency.
Reasons to go…
- You love the McColl Center and want to help them raise money
- You missed out on the Color for the People series and still want the Leah Rosenberg experience
- Juan William Chavez’s art practice is right up your alley. Think: “unconventional forms of beekeeping and agriculture that utilize art as a way of researching, developing and implementing creative placemaking and socially-engaged projects”
- Leaving work early to drink cocktails and eat cake in the name of art is absolutely worth it.
