60s Themed Throw-Back Party for the Arts Council of Princeton’s 50th Anniversary
May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$125 – $300
In celebration of the Arts Council of Princeton’s 50th year, the theme of the spring art and wine benefit, Pinot to Picasso, is Vinyl & Velvet 1968. The art party will take place on Friday, May 18 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Technology Center of Princeton at 330 Carter Road. About 400 guests are expected to attend the celebration that will include a salon-style exhibition, gourmet tastings from local restaurants, wines from around the world, and dancing.
One of the highlights of the evening is the “Tombola,” an Italian-style lottery where every ticket holder wins an original work of art. More than 75 beautiful original works of art have been donated by talented local artists. The number of Tombola tickets available is limited to the number of pieces of art. Tombola ticket holders, having already previewed the available choices, make a quick decision when their number is drawn. In the end, each Tombola ticket holder takes home a unique work of art.
Funds raised from Pinot to Picasso contribute, in part, to the Arts Council’s Anne Reeves Fund, which supports Community Arts initiatives and the Arts Council of Princeton’s Artist-in-Residence Program.
Tickets for Pinot to Picasso are $125 for a Taster event ticket and $300 for a Tombola entry. Sponsorship tickets are available starting at $500. Purchase tickets online at artscouncilofprinceton.org or call 609.924.8777 x 109.
