Create your own journey in this unique virtual gala, unlike anything you’ve ever seen or experienced this season honoring Todd Poteet and Sade Sharras. Enjoy the evening’s adventure from your home produced by The Art Effect’s apprentice production company, Forge Media, Alumni Art Show and an Online Auction. Art After Dark pairs perfectly with a cheese & charcuterie box which can be ordered and delivered or picked up before the event. Our inaugural year of this event was held in 2018 at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and Museum. In its second year, Art After Dark: Creating New Narratives was held at Locust Grove Estate. Proceeds from this event provide support for The Art Effect’s art education and youth programming. Save the Date and Stay Updated
