Dart for Art 2021

Event Details
Presented by

July 14 & 15, 2021

Join Crooked Tree Arts Center on Wednesday, July 14 and Thursday, July 15, at LOCAL in downtown Bay Harbor for two unforgettable evenings to celebrate the arts. This year's featured artist, Heidi A. Marshall has created a masterpiece to serve as inspiration for this year's event.

Dart for Art's two-day festivities feature a Preview Night complete with strolling heavy appetizers, wine and beer, live music, and silent auction as guests mix and mingle with Dart artists to preview the Dart for Art gallery.

Thursday's Main Event will wow guests. The evening includes a cocktail hour with appetizers by featured chefs, a gourmet seated dinner, silent and live auctions, entertainment, arts experiences, and of course everyone's favorite part of the evening⁠—"darting" for your choice of artwork to take home. The Dart for Art Gallery features more than 150 pieces of original artwork, including paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, glasswork, and more!

Best of all, proceeds from Dart for Art benefit CTAC's mission to inspire and enrich lives through the arts in Northern Michigan! It's a party with a purpose!

Special thank you to this year's event chairs, Amy Cox and Stephanie Jones.


Preview Night: Wednesday, July 14 from 6:00-9:00 PM
Main Event: Thursday, July 15 from 6:00-11:00 PM

Artists Unite!

Each year, more than 150 artists unite in support of the arts in Northern Michigan by donating an original work of art to Dart for Art. We gather paintings, watercolors, glasswork, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, photography, fiber art, and more. Each piece is professionally photographed for listing in the Dart for Art Artist Catalog with the artist's contact information, website, and listing of galleries in which they exhibit. 

Due to COVID restrictions on capacity, donating artists receive one complimentary ticket to Dart for Art Preview Night on Wednesday, July 14. If capacity increases in the state of Michigan, all donating artists will be offered an additional complimentary ticket for a guest. All artwork is displayed at the event and is part of the "darting" experience on Thursday, July 15—during which guests "dart" (run) for their choice of artwork to take home. 

We hope that you will join us in our mission and donate a piece of your art in support of Crooked Tree Arts Center. Artists interested in donating may contact Andrea Coronado at andrea@crookedtree.org or (231) 347-2718.
