Block Party is ADCT’s yearly art party to raise funds for art students. How it works: Artists have their way with a 3.5? x 3.5? wooden block which will be silently auctioned off the night of the block party. The funds raised will be awarded to exceptional art students during our Graphex 46 awards presentation. In previous years we’ve been able to give $5,000 in student awards—please join us in trying to increase that # this year and have a great time doing it!

The party will be held at Living Arts Gallery (307 East Brady Street) November 20, 6-9 pm where we will silently auction off artist’s blocks. There will be a $4 cover charge (artists donating a block to be auctioned will get in free). Awards will be given to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place blocks and also for the highest bidding block. h’orderves and cash bar will be available.
