What is "darting?" | The Dart for Art Gallery features more than 200 pieces of original artwork, including paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, glasswork, and more! Ticket-holders will get to select a work of art when their name is called — the order in which art is selected is the luck of the draw! When your name is called, you will run ("dart") and grab your piece of artwork off the wall!
