Art Ties us has quickly become one of St. Petersburg's most recognized Arts Fundraisers. Riding off the success of last year's inaugural event, Art Ties Us is a passion project fueled by the desire to recognize and celebrate the artistic and economic contributions local artists have made throughout the City of St. Petersburg.
This year the Art Ties Us committee will bring something totally unique and exciting to the Gala. Painting live on stage, Derek Donnelly and Michael Vahl will work on a unique and collaborative art piece. Next to them, Nicholas Lucius and Frankie G will collaborate on their own unique piece. A priceless collaboration of this nature, painted in a live format, has not been done before. Both completed pieces, as well as the top three winners, will be part of the live auction at the Gala. All art submitted for the Art Ties Us contest will be auctioned at the Gala as well.
The second annual Enso Award will be given to The Dali this year and presented by St. Pete's very own, Duncan McClellan. The Enso Award is given annually to an individual or organization who demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the Arts in our community.
