Center for the Arts: ARTrageous

July 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Get ready to transcend the traditional in this one-night-only immersive gala.

Enjoy an evening of glamour and cutting-edge art experiences, including surprising pop-up performances; live world-fusion jazz; storytelling improv paired with visual art; stunning aerial dance; history told through verse and set to music.

Your experiential evening begins with artisan cocktails and boutique wines (yes and amen, exquisite drink offerings will flow freely all night) so you can sip and mingle while choosing from a menu of unique experiences. Move about the new Center for the Arts building, taking in the various artistic offerings to uncover the full potential and versatility of what this facility has to offer. Throughout your journey, imaginative chefs serve up creative small plates.

This is the Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so during all this immersive entertainment, be sure to stop by the auction tables to secure unique objects and enviable adventures to destinations from Puerto Vallarta to Key Largo and beyond.

This is a new breed of fundraising event, different than anything you’ve ever experienced. It’s going to be ARTrageous!
