Save the Date for Art BINGO 2017 on Saturday April 29th!
It’s time for Art BINGO, a lively, engrossing and utterly unique event where new and continuing collectors play bingo to win original art! This year marks our 6th annual Art BINGO and all the fun you’ve come to expect will be back full force this year. Come for a great time with great food and drinks, and great company. Don your lucky hat, enjoy lively bingo callers and fall in love with artworks worth testing your luck for. Each game will be played for a specific piece, and the winning players will take their piece home that night. All proceeds from the event will be used to support The Art Connection’s mission in providing access to art in undeserved communities.
A Call to Artists: We are seeking 2D artwork that is framed or ready to hang, not to exceed 36” in any direction and 3D artwork not to exceed 20” in any direction, weighing less than 20 pounds. Juror John Guthrie will select 12 works of art to be included in our Art BINGO fundraising event on April 29th, 2017. Artwork donations support the mission of The Art Connection, which enriches and empowers under-served communities by increasing access to original works of art. Please submit work by February 24, 2017.
