Art Celebration 2012
October 13, 2012
Right this way… Your table is waiting. A little song… a little dance … one great big celebration. The Columbus Museum of Art invites you to come to the cabaret for “Spot Lights, Hot Nights” —the 65th annual Art Celebration on Saturday, October 13, 2012. The Museum’s largest annual fundraising event, Art Celebration brings together more than 500 community and business leaders for an evening of fun, food and great art, and we’re expecting this year’s gala to be one of our most memorable evenings ever.
We’ll kick off the evening at 6:00 p.m. with a VIP cocktails and a private performance at 6:30 featuring the Short North Stage players in the Cardinal Health Auditorium. Taking their cue from the great Cabarets of 1930s Europe, the performers will entertain with their sultry vocal stylings, dazzling dance routines, and all-around wonderful and witty performances. At 7:00, the main event will begin, with guests invited to explore the Museum galleries while enjoying a sumptuous offering of food and drink. Then, it’s your turn to be in the spotlight, with live music in the Derby Court and dancing by all.
Art Celebration (Formerly known as Art Ball) raises necessary funds to support the mission of the Museum as well as to bring Museum friends and family together for an evening of festivity and fun.
VIP tickets are $650, General Admission are $400, sponsorship opportunities are available. Call Kristy Emch for more information or to be added to the invitation list, 614.629.0344
Co-Chairs for this year’s gala are Arlene Weiss and Beth Crane
Sponsors: Express and Nationwide
