24th Annual freshART

Saturday, September 17


Dozens of the area's best artists will spend the day in Devou Park creating art en plein air, which will be auctioned at the freshART gala that evening to benefit the museum's youth education programs.

This is the 24th year that BCM has hosted freshART, which includes a cocktail reception, art preview and an elegant dinner catered by McHale's Events and Catering in the museum's outdoor amphitheater.

The public is invited to observe the freshART artists at work in Devou Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 17 and to visit the museum, which will have free admission that day. A portion of the sale price of each freshART and silentART piece will go to the artist, the balance donated to the museum. Submitted artworks will be judged by a panel of experts with cash prizes totaling $1,000 awarded to the first, second, and third-place entries from the William and Patricia Applegarth Fund.

Tickets to freshART 2016 are $125, available by calling (859) 491-4003. Since freshART began in 1992, more than a half million dollars has been raised, bringing educational and cultural activities to nearly a quarter-million Northern Kentucky children.

See you on September 17!
