D'Art for Art is Crooked Tree Arts Center's premier fundraising event that is held each July.  D'Art for Art is unique in that guests leave with an original work of art created by artists of local, regional and national acclaim. The proceeds from D'Art for Art help support the year-round programs of CTAC, including exhibitions, classes, school tours, scholarships for youth, and so much more.  Learn more about the D'Art for Art event.

The success of this event largely depends on the generosity of our artists. This is the one time that we ask artists to donate their work. Otherwise, we work diligently to promote and create opportunities for our artists.  D’Art for Art is a two-night event with 500 guests each evening comprised of both resort and local community art patrons.  We hope you will join us in our mission and donate a piece of your art in support of Crooked Tree Arts Center!
