You’ve probably already heard a thing or two about our annual Block Party event. We’re here today to fill you in on the details. This event isn’t just about seeing the awesome art, it’s for a great cause. Proceeds go towards our student scholarships, which will be awarded at Graphex at the end of the season.
Local artists (many of whom are ADCT members) have been hard at work transforming a plain block of wood into a unique piece of art. The block represents the potential for transformation, and we always get a diverse collection. All you have to do to score one of the finished pieces is show up Thursday night and start bidding! It’s a silent auction, so make sure to check on your bid a few times throughout the night. Auction closes at 8:30. Four dollars gets you in, unless you donated a block (artists get in free).
And we have an exciting new addition this year! Tulsa Modern Movement, a contemporary dance group, will be performing a piece inspired by the blocks. You won’t want to miss this special performance. Hors d’oeuvres and cash bar will also be available.
The fun starts 6:00 and wraps up around 9:00 pm. At the end of the night we’ll tally the auction and give awards to the artists. Awards are given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place blocks – plus one more for the block that catches the highest price.We’ll see you at Living Arts for our biggest fundraiser of the year!
