The Great Art Heist
Saturday, September 16th at 6pm
Our biggest, most fun, fundraiser of the year with proceeds going toward our classes, exhibits and programs. Buy a ticket, pick your favorites and come steal an artwork. Everyone goes home with an original artwork worth far more than the ticket purchase price!
Only ticket holders are allowed to the event, sorry no spectators. The event will take place in our backyard with a live stream of the gallery. You'll will be able to watch your fellow bandits stealing artwork right off the walls.
We sincerely thank everyone who supported us by donating their art. We received over 140 artworks! See all the artwork here.
About The Great Art Heist
On the night of the event, we'll pull a name from the list of ticket holders. If you're the first name called, you get to "steal" an artwork off the wall. The second name called gets to steal what's remaining and so on. It's a game of chance. If you're one of the lucky ones to have your name called in the beginning, you get to go home with your first choice. It's the luck of the draw!
When you buy a ticket we keep track of your name and the number of tickets at SCAA. You'll then either come into our gallery to pick your favorites or view the artwork online. Photos will be online by August 20th. Once you have your list of favorites, bring it to the event, and mark off any that are stolen. That way you’ll know what to grab once your name gets called.
Just so everything goes according to plan, here are a few tips:
People's Choice Awards
