How does this work?
ArtClub members will receive a monthly invite during the first week of the month. Attendance is free for ArtClub members (you'll receive a promo code), but you must reserve your spot via Eventbrite. (Space is limited to 60 people.)

Each month, ArtPrize On Tap will highlight something new and give you the insider scoop about the coming season of ArtPrize. The doors open at 5:30 and the program begins at 6:00. Happy hour snacks are provided by ArtClub. Drinks must be purchased individually unless otherwise noted in a specific invite. You are invited to stay and enjoy the Centennial Room together until 7:30 p.m. — after that, the Founders taproom will gladly welcome you if you and your friends want to keep the good times happening later into the evening!
