CALL TO ARTISTS Be Part of freshART’s Big 25 4-8 p.m., Sunday, September 17, 2017 Drees Pavilion, Devou Park, Covington, KY Behringer-Crawford Museum is seeking 25 of the region's best artists to celebrate its 25th year of freshART with 25 hours of creativity!
Over the past quarter-century, BCM's freshART gala has raised more than a quarter million dollars for the museum's educational outreach programs, thanks to the generous efforts of local artists who spent a day working en plein air in Covington's Devou Park to create works for the event's live auction. For freshART's silver anniversary, we're going big, with lots of new features. New Location: The elegant Drees Pavilion overlooking the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati New Hours: 4 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 17 New Live Auction Rules: Only 25 of the area's top artists will be invited to participate in the live auction. Instead of being limited to one day to create their works, they will have up to 25 hours between sign-in on Saturday morning and turn-in early Sunday afternoon. The application fee includes a ticket to the gala and freshARTISTs are invited to stand by their finished works during the cocktail hour to meet guests and discuss their art. New Silent Auction Rules: The silentART auction also will be limited to 25 entries, but all forms of artwork are enthusiastically encouraged - painting, sculpture, photography, pottery, woodworking, fabric art, glasswork, leather crafting, even culinary arts! silentART items will be available for bidding at BCM from September 2-16, and at the Drees on the day of the event. An opening reception for silentART will take place at the museum from 5-7 p.m. on September 2. New Ticket Price: Patron admission price reduced by $25 to just $75 per person, so more bidders!
