screen-shot-2016-09-09-at-17-53-16I will be here!  Check it out:
The artist pages are now on the website, www.artpartysj.com. Check out the diverse collection of nearly 240 artists that will be exhibiting and if you haven’t already, get your tickets for the Art event you want to be talking about, NOT hearing about!
On Gala Night, we have nearly 50 writers who will be reading in the Spoken Word Lounge, while poets type personalized poems for you under the Cafe lights.
We just made history by picking up what must be the only building permit ever issued for a Rabbit Hole! You will see what the excitement is about, when you go under the blue Fairgrounds Arch and enter our Wonderland.
There is not enough room here to write about the rest of the Gala Night: the Music, Dance, Art Cars, Food Trucks, Live Painting, Fire and Film, but there is room for it all at the Fairgrounds, so come check it out!
Make a weekend of it. We have special Art Party deals at various San Jose hotels. See them here: https://artpartysj.com/about/sj-hotels/ Go out for a meal at a Downtown San Jose eating establishment on Saturday or Sunday and bring the receipt with you on Sunday. It is a free pass to view all the art you missed on Saturday night, because there was just so much happening.
Remember, most of the art is for sale.
And take a look at the ticket page and see that we are offering a “Wall Baron” package, which gets your name on a wall and a “Step It Up” package, which includes a night at the Fairmont Hotel. Both packages include a tax deductible donation and VIP tickets.
Check them out here: https://artpartysj.com/tickets
VIP space is limited and tickets are selling quickly, so if you want those tickets, get them now.
See you on the 24th! Thank you again for all your support.
