There are three opportunities to enjoy art and culture for this unique event. The 24-hour Art Marathon will begin September 20 at 10am at the Summit. Our artists will spend 24 hours sketching, painting, constructing, sculpting, assembling, and thriving at the top of their physical and artistic limits. Enjoy samples of their previous work, below, and click on any image for more information about the artist. 


The Art Preview Party will happen during the evening of September 20, from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Summit. This is an opportunity for the public to get a sneak peek at the Marathon works, and to meet our talented artists!

The final portion of the celebration, the Gala Auction Fundraiser, happens on September 22 at 5:30 pm at the Summit, with a hosted dinner (see menu here) and beverages provided by Elysian Brewing.  All works made during the 24-hour Marathon will be presented for auction by auctioneer Laura Michalek.
