Art Grab - How It Works

Guests arrive at 7pm and check-in at the front desk to receive their Art Grab ticket. From 7-8pm all guests can preview art in the Art Gallery room, grab a snack and drink in the café, and mingle with friends throughout the venue or outside (weather permitting).

Starting promptly at 8pm, participants will be asked to come forward based on the color of their Art Grab ticket (received at check-in). Only the group currently grabbing art will be allowed in the Art Gallery room during the Art Grab portion of the event. Once you grab your piece, please exit to the back.

  • Winner's Circle: Gold ticket holder will enter Art Gallery and make their selection.
  • Exclusive VIP: Silver ticket holders will line up in numerical order (1-10) at the entrance to the Art Gallery and proceed to make their selections.
  • VIP: Red ticket holders will line up in numerical order (1-20) at the entrance to the Art Gallery and proceed to make their selections.
  • General Admission: A color will be randomly selected and announced. Those holding that color ticket will line up in numerical order (1-20) at the entrance to the Art Gallery and proceed to make their selections. This process will be repeated until the Art Grab is complete.
