This year will be unlike our previous events, with an opportunity to bid on creatively designed and crafted masks in an exciting live auction, Facing the Mask! The auction will feature masks created by local celebrities and notable figures along with their individual story of how art benefits them. This special group of creators feature WGN news anchor, Larry Potash; iHeart radio personality, Melissa Forman; rock ‘n roll drummer of the hair metal band Poison, Rikki Rocket; HGTV star and owner of Hammer Design Group, Ari Smejkal; Scott Marr, retired Wardrobe Director of the Lyric Opera; Kati Murphy, VP of Meow Wolf; Chicago Bear’s alumni and Chief Entrepreneur of Alkeme Health, Ryan Mundy; painter, Joalida Smit, and artist, Jamie Wineman. This is an event you don’t want to miss! We will also have other fun opportunities to support Art Impact Project. We’ll have a bottle pull featuring 28 Mile Distillery Co. spirits, as well as wine donated by jdR wine and beer, plus a paddle raise. And don’t forget to enter our DRAWing for an opportunity to win a unique Milwaukee art experience package, including a night’s stay at the Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel along with entry to the Milwaukee Art Museum, other art related venues and more!
