What is D'Art for Art?

D’Art is a game we play where everyone is a winner. Guests at the event are able to “d’art” for their choice of more than 250 original pieces of work created by artists of local, regional and national acclaim.

On Wednesday’s preview night, meet the winemakers, chefs and artists! Guests will sample wines from a variety of vintners from California and Michigan, select craft beers, hors d’oeuvres from guest chefs, bid on special auction items, and preview all the artwork for D’Art for Art.

Thursday’s D’Art for Art begins with cocktails and featured hors d’oeuvres from guest chefs and continues with a seated gourmet dinner. There are many wonderful items to bid on in both the silent auction and the live auction. The evening concludes with of course, “d’arting” for artwork! Guests leave with an original work of art- more than 250 artists support in this annual event.

Proceeds from D’Art for Art benefit the arts center’s year round programs including exhibitions, concerts, classes, school tours, dance, scholarships and so much more. If you would like to learn more about this distinctive event, please contact the arts center at 231.347.4337 or andrea@crookedtree.org.
