Somewhat Off the Wall, a unique art exhibition and party from which guests take home original works of art, will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 5-9pm in the Lobby of 360 State, 360 State Street, New Haven.
This year’s event features drawings, jewelry, paintings, photography, pottery, prints, textiles, and glass by 51 outstanding artists who have each donated three pieces of their work. These works will be on display to the public at 360 State starting September 8th. At 7pm on the night of the party, numbered premium tickets will be drawn at random. As each premium ticket holders’ number is called, he or she will select a piece of original artwork to take home.
Each of the 51 participating artists will be given a premium ticket making only 102 premium tickets, at $100 each, available to the public. An unlimited number of tickets to the party are available for $45 (these do not include artwork). Also available this year is a special “30 and under crowd” party ticket for $35.
