The Art Event
Our 15th Annual Art Event: Feb. 8-10, 2019
Artist Applications Opening June 15, 2018
Admission is free.
The weekend of February 8-11th, Lipscomb Academy hosted its 14th annual Art Event in a new location on campus. The McCadams Athletic Center was transformed into a beautiful venue displaying a wide range of media that include painting, jewelery and woodworking. This 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.
Our silent auction featured a series of “Music City” themed artwork by Lipscomb Academy students, as well as pieces donated by many of our artists in attendance. All of the proceeds from the silent auction benefit the fine arts at Lipscomb Academy, totalling $7,150. Funds from our silent auction have aided in purchasing instruments for our strings program, construction to create a backstage door to Acuff for our performing arts, and purchased a large format printer and digital cameras for use in our visual arts programs.
Thank you to our hard-working Art Event Chairs, our participating artists and the many volunteers that made this years event a success.
