Local Art After Dark, After Sample the Sierra
After Sample the Sierra, keep the good vibes going at Benko Art Gallery for Local Art After Dark. Ignite Joy Productions and Benko are teaming up with the Chamber of Commerce to bring you an after-party art experience like no other!
Embark on an enchanting journey of LIVE art that entices the five senses. Experience local art of all forms: live painters, local musicians, and dance performances! Enjoy delicious appetizers and locally crafted drinks from local artisans including Refuge Coffee, Folk Kombucha, South Lake Brewing Company and Bella Grace Winery. Be a part of the art yourself by painting on the community mural, jamming to live music and boogying down to the live DJ set at the end of the night! This event is all about supporting local arts and giving back to the community – proceeds of the event will benefit Tahoe Youth & Family Services, the only non-profit in Tahoe providing drop-in services for homeless youth.
One ticket gets you the full art experience: entrance into the gallery and live art and music performances, appetizers, a raffle ticket and a drink ticket (alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices available)!
