Today we continue our preview of the live auction items that will be available for bidding at The Art of We: Are Family, our 4th Annual Community Celebration and Fundraiser, on May 18! Next up, we’re shining a spotlight on our Performing and Culinary Arts: Artists’ Picks package.

In honor of The Year of the Teaching Artist, each of the theaters included in this package were handpicked by our Teaching Artists and Staff, some of the most accomplished professional artists in the region. They identified companies with whom they frequently work or perform and that have been important to their development and growth as artists; and in turn, these theaters and nearby restaurants generously donated contributions to this package. Bid on this package to enjoy the wealth of the Twin Cities arts and culinary scene!
