Northside Arts Collective’s Fall Gala “The Magic of Art”
By: Jeanne Fish 11/01/2009
The Northside Arts Collective has made huge strides forward in the past four years. From 2005 when we obtained our nonprofit status to the current year, we've grown our membership exponentially, been awarded numerous grants for projects that have benefited our membership and the Northside community, and we finally have our first full time executive director. Indeed from an outsider's perspective it looks as if magic has been performed. Like the art of magic, there is a lot of hard work that goes on behind what looks like magic that the Northside Arts Collective has performed. We must also acknowledge that art has its own magical ability to transform lives and neighborhoods, especially ones as challenged as ours - this year we celebrate "The Magic of Art" at our 5th Annual Fall Gala.
Join us at the Lundstrum Center for the Performing Arts, 1617 N. 2nd St., on Friday, November 13 from 6-9 p.m. and enjoy magical illusions, hor d'ouvres and wine, live music and our incredible raffle and live auction of original artworks, personal services and amenities. Gala tickets are $10; raffle tickets are $5 each or five for $20 available at the event or call the NAC office at 612-767-2144. A digital catalog of raffle and live auction offerings is available, contact denise.dumas @nacarts.org.
