Nido's much anticipated Arts Showdown event is coming up on Thursday, May 16 at 7:00pm in the Arts Building. There will be wine, hors d'oeuvres, music, a "Smash & Grab" raffle, and great fun with amazing art by important artists at affordable prices!
The silent auction will be expanded this year to encompass an exhibition of over 50 works of art by professional Chilean artists with the opportunity to bid on art below retail prices.
Art donated by the Nido community will be placed in the Smash & Grab Raffle. Each purchased raffle ticket guarantees you will go home with a piece of art. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the first to get their name called getting their first choice of art on display and so on. It is rapid fire!
Smash and Grab Raffle tickets will be sold at the event only for $20,000 CLP, first come-first serve. Raffle tickets are not included with the entrance ticket. Entrance tickets are $15,000 early bird or $20,000 after April 23.
Proceeds from the event will go towards enhancing the Arts program at Nido. Proceeds from last year's Arts Showdown went towards purchasing new art display boards which will be used by many divisions. Proceeds from this year's Arts Showdown will go in part towards funding the Nido Visiting Artist Series, which this year includes an exciting partnership for our students with a professional artist who is completing a mural at Nido later this year.
This event is open to the public and for adults only. Invite your friends!
