Are you ARTrageous?!
We invite you to start the night on the Customs House steps along State Street, decked out with decorations from artists Jesse and Ricardo. Enter the Hagen Family Gallery to a champagne toast with an interactive art installation by Fran Schanz & Deb Sementelli.

Immerse yourself in the South Asian exhibit in the Lower Level Customs House with a performance by Masood Omari and Abigail Adams Greenway of Tabla For Two.

Be the first to see the newest Bacon Gallery exhibit by famed
New York Photographer Jose Picayo; meet him in the gallery!

You’ll love the unique and creative food and drink pairings in every gallery from
Magic Hat Brewing Company
& Make It Fabulous.

The 93rd Annual Spring Show will be on display along with
an exhibition from local artist Alison Stinely.

Shake it off with a reunion of Matty B and the Dirty Pickles, is a Folk’n Rock band
that creates a unique blend of songs that weaves catchy lyrics in with a raucous live performance!

Relax and unwind in the Nicholas Gallery lounge with music from Tasana Camara, a griot, musical storyteller, healer and keeper of ancient traditions from Guinea in West Africa. Have a drink and relax!

Heat things up with a fire-and-ice on our 5th Street patio!
We’ll have a cool ART-tini bar on ice and Jennifer Dennehy will perform a fire-hoop dance.
