7th Annual Calendart 2017 Gala
Art Mundo’s largest fundraiser of the year and biggest party - Calendart 2017 - will be held Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Sunrise Black Box Theatre. 2016 will be the 7th year Art Mundo has created these unique, one-of-a-kind calendars with original work by our area's very talented artists. These calendars are collectors items and only 12 of them will be available for 2017.
Calendart is a fabulous opportunity to support Art Mundo’s mission of providing education, exhibition and community outreach in the contemporary arts and to start or add to your personal art collection. There will be 12 Calendart calendars this year and each will include 12 original works of art by 12 different artists. 11 of these unique one of a kind beauties will be sold to the highest bidder at live auction at the Calendart Gala. One Calendart calendar will be awarded by raffle.
There will be a Chinese Auction with twelve 8 x 10 matted and framed works of art - one from each of the twenty four Calendart Artists. 8 x 10 is such a nice size to hang just about anywhere. There will also be an exhibit of other original work by the Calendart artists - just in time to start your holiday shopping. This evening will shine a spotlight on art and artists. The Gala will be an evening full of friends - old and new, art and artists, music and musicians and some surprises. There will be live music by the Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society, a light hors d'oeuvres buffet and and a cash bar.
Calendart Gala tickets are $50 per person or 3 tickets for $100. They are available on our website www.artmundo.org. Each gala ticket includes entry for one person to the evening's festivities and one raffle ticket for the single Calendart calendar to be raffled off. Additional raffle tickets for the one Calendart Calender to be raffled this year are $10 for one or $25 for 3, you do not need to be present to win.
