Join us at DART for ART, Crooked Tree Arts Center’s premier fundraising event on July 18, 2019! Enjoy an evening filled with amazing art, fabulous food, delectable drinks, and plenty of festivities. More than just a great party, DART for ART helps us to continue our mission to inspire and enrich lives through the arts!
This year, we celebrate our featured artist, Elizabeth Blair, whose jewelry design is much beloved in Northern Michigan! The featured piece includes a long strand of natural pearls embellished with jade carved frog stones in gold settings, aquamarine stones, and two pairs of matching earrings. This beautiful piece will serve as the inspiration for this year's event!
DART for ART features hors d’oeuvres from guest chefs, followed by a seated dinner. Of course, there will be all your favorite activities, such as silent and live auctions, and “Darting.” Best of all, you will leave with an original work of art - included with your ticket purchase!
