2013 Planning in Progress- Watch for updates soon!
2012 Party Information: The VIP Art Dash Kick-off party, set for Friday, April 13 at 7 pm at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel, is one of the most unique and exciting events of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival weekend. This elegant and exclusive evening gives art lovers the chance to mingle with artists from 36 states and as far away as Israel, plus an opportunity to purchase a 60-Second Art Dash ticket and dash for their choice of over 140 original art pieces donated by festival artists.
The evening begins with a cocktail reception, where guests can enjoy culinary creations from Marriott chefs while mingling with the artists. Purchase an Art Dash ticket and pre-shop for your selections. Entertainment follows with an opportunity to bid for one of several stunning items, live auctioned by radio celebrity Dana Tyson. Then the excitement of the Dash begins: Each ticket holder has 60 seconds to make a dash for the art piece of their choice.
"This is a dynamic and fun event with a little something for everyone," says Festival Director Jenny Wright. "Now in its seventh year, the Arts Festival VIP Kick-off Party has become one of the most coveted special event invitations in The Woodlands."
Admission to the event is $125 per person. For an additional $150, guests may purchase a 60-Second Art Dash ticket. These tickets are limited (and are offered one per guest only), as the number of Art Dash tickets sold is determined by the number of art pieces donated by participating artists.
