Art Alive! takes the mystery out of the art-making process by letting you watch eight Birmingham artists at work. It’s an evening of food, music, fun, and art . . . and you don’t want to miss it.
What is Art Alive!
It’s an awesome benefit for AIDS Alabama where you get to watch not one, but eight local artists create original artwork on site.
There’s a silent auction where you can bid on the pieces that are being created. There will be a gallery where you can purchase other already completed artwork in the gallery.
Your $50 ticket also includes complimentary food (thank you, El Barrio!), as well as complimentary beer and wine. Cheers!
There’ll also be music from the Matthew Carroll Band.
Proceeds benefit the many programs and services of AIDS Alabama.
