Join the party – become a sponsor!

You have a unique opportunity to become involved in one of the most talked about celebrations in the history of Erie. ARTrageous! Honoring 50 years of John Vanco is expected to be the event of the Summer as we celebrate the Erie Art Museum and revere the services of its director, John Vanco. If that isn’t enough reason to be an integral part of our second annual ARTrageous! benefit gala, consider the fun you will have exploring the Museum after dark where you will share a variety of experiences you just can’t have during a typical visit.

Be ARTrageous with the Erie Art Museum! We are currently soliciting support for this signature event. Sponsorship opportunities are limited and the deadline to commit is March 20, 2017 to ensure placement in the printed invitation. Click here to download a pdf of the sponsorship benefits package
