Rochester Art Center

September 23, 2017

ARTBASH is Rochester Art Center’s premier fundraiser and southeast Minnesota’s best art party. This year will feature a Locavore, farm-to-table atmosphere to coincide with LOCAVORE and HOMEGROWN: 2’x2′, a southeastern Minnesota juried art exhibition opening September 22. This year’s ARTBASH art auction is an incredible opportunity to bid on art from Rochester Art Center’s private collection, precious and rare works that are being made available to purchase for the first time in many years, including pieces by Alexander Calder, Phillip Guston, Georges Braque and Kenneth Noland. In addition, dozens of works by contemporary artists recently seen in exhibitions at RAC will be included.

Included in an ARTBASH ticket, is entry to the PREBASH hosted by Cambria® and includes appetizers, cocktails, and live music from 5:00 – 6:30pm. The Rochester Trolley will provide you a ride from and to the Rochester Art Center from 5:00 – 7:00pm.

AFTERBASH is happening on the brand new Riverview Plaza just outside RAC’s doors. AFTERBASH party-goers will be able to make gourmet s’mores over fire, dance to high energy DJ music, and experience other surprises. To add onto the whole ARTBASH experience, new this year is ARTBRUNCH happening the day after ARTBASH, Sunday, September 24 at Bleu Duck.

Shake it out and dust it off, #ARTBASH2017 is here to bring the bash back.
