“Off the Wall” Fundraiser For Contemporary Art Center

The Center for Contemporary Art (The Center) in Bedminster will hold its fall fundraiser, “Off the Wall,” on Friday, September 16 from 7-10 p.m. This unconventional party and art auction will be an evening filled with avant-garde appetizers, chic cocktails, live music, a 50/50 raffle, and a chance to go home with an original work of art created by The Center’s community of exhibiting and visiting artists, faculty, members, and students from the well-established to the up-and-coming.

In addition to 2D and 3D works of art in the silent auction, 8”x8” works created by a wide variety of artists from The Center’s community will be available for $100 each.

While bidding on their favorite works of art, guests will enjoy bites from Continental Cookery in Bernardsville, a signature cocktail from Claremont Distillery in Fairfield, as well as a variety of other refreshments and beverages.

In keeping with the unconventional theme of the party, guests are encouraged to wear their most eccentric ensemble. Cash awards will be given for the least conventional attire.

Tickets are $50 per person in advance or $60 at the door (must be 21 or over to attend). All proceeds directly support The Center’s mission and programs including education, exhibitions, and community partnerships which support accessibility to the arts.
