Support the Hambidge Center by being a
Patron or Host

of the spectacular Hambidge Art Auction + Performance Gala
on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

This year we are thrilled to relocate to Colony Square, in the heart of Atlanta, at the corner of Peachtree and 14th Streets. Our new home will provide an incredible fresh canvas for our brightest talents to shine, while also providing you plenty of free self-parking, and access via Marta’s Arts Center station. Colony Square has embraced our events, and we welcome their partnership.  

We are honored to extend to you the invitation to join our Patron & Host Committee for this always unique and memorable evening. All committee members are invited to the exclusive Patron & Host Party, two hours prior to the general opening. You will also have a select first opportunity to purchase $100 “Works on Paper” while savoring a sumptuous menu provided by Donetto and special guest chef Michael Perez, plus special SKYY Vodka cocktails. Hosts and Patron privileges continue all evening with unfettered access to a special lounge area.

In addition to 200 superb works of art, the event will also feature Hambidge’s new Creative Hive Project, featuring seven teams of artists that will transform spaces throughout Colony Square with engaging and interactive installations, dance and musical performances. Also, be prepared for a virtual feast for the eyes with a larger than life art installation by Jason Hackenwerth. His creations have been featured in The Guggenheim Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The National Museum of Scotland and many others. Jason’s installation will be taken down during a fun dance party on June 3 that all hosts are invited to join. Check our auction page regularly, since there will be more surprises in store for all our hosts!

Your participation plays a key role in the success of our most important fundraiser of the year. More importantly, we would not consider our event a smashing success without good friends and supporters like you, there to celebrate with us! All proceeds from the evening are directed toward Hambidge residencies for today’s brightest talents, tomorrow’s preeminent creative minds.

Respectfully yours,
