McCadams Athletic Center - Lipscomb Academy Athletic Complex

Event - The art event academy

The weekend of February 8-10, Lipscomb Academy will host its 15th annual Art Event at the McCadams Athletic Center. The MAC will be transformed into a beautiful venue displaying a wide range of media that include painting, jewelry and woodworking.

The Art Event is Lipscomb Academy’s major fundraiser that features more than 70 participating artists, with 30 percent of each art sale benefiting the school. Artists include established and new artists selected from nearly 130 applicants, as well as talented Lipscomb students. In addition to the art show, there is a silent auction of pieces donated by participating artists, with proceeds from the auction going directly to the Fine Arts programs at Lipscomb Academy. Fine Arts is a key part of the student experience at Lipscomb Academy, and support from the Art Event ensures that our students will have the resources needed to hone their talents.

This year's featured artist is Mary Miller Veazie of Murfreesboro.

Last year's featured artist was Vicki Denaburg of Birmingham, Ala., and was our most successful to date, boasting more than $205,000 in fine art sales, raising $61,000 for the Lipscomb Academy Annual Fund.
