  • The Brush-off!

    7:00pm - 10:00pm | The Children's Museum

    Fifteen artists will test their skills and creativity through four elimination rounds of this live painting competition. Through vote casting, guests will determine who makes it through each round and which artist will ultimately become the night’s champion.

    37 original pieces of art will be created in front of everyone’s watching eyes. It’s all or nothing in this competition – there are no do-overs. Guests can take a piece from the evening home by placing a winning bid in support of the Children’s Museum. A progressive silent auction will also occur throughout the night.

    Proceeds generated will enable the museum to enhance exhibits, create educational programs, and help fund the Free2Play Access Program which provides free museum visits to underprivileged children in our community.
