At Art Bingo 12 bingo games were played for specific works of art selected for our event by jurors Michele Cohen, Ph.D., a public art consultant, curator, and founding director of New York City’s Public Art for Public Schools and Steven Zevitas, a gallery owner and president and publisher of New American Paintings, a juried exhibition in print.
(From top left) Adria Arch, Chuck Beisch, Kristina Bell DiTullo, Irma Cerese, Heidi Hornberger, Sam Moyer, Eddie Martinez, Debra Olin, Rani Sarin, Prilla Smith Brackett, and Chuck Webster (Please follow the links to enjoy more of these artists’ work.)
Attendees played many rounds to increase their chances to take home one of the works of art pictured above. There was also raffle to win the limited edition Art Connection portfolio, a collection of nine fine art lithographs.
Celebrity bingo callers Dan Hunter, Robert Bridgeman, Camilo Alvarez, Carole Bolsey, our MC Allyn Burrows, and the PhDJ added to the fun. There was a silent auction of 25 premium items including Cancun, New Hampshire, and Vermont getaways, a kayak, and local theater and restaurant packages. Heavy hors d’oeuvres were donated from restaurants and markets across Boston!
