Second Annual ARTumnal Gathering
November 22, 2008
Our biggest, most extravagant, and fabulous event to date!
Thank you for joining us!
On November 22, 2008, BRAF hosted our most extravagant and grandest fundraiser to date. Over 800 people gathered in support of the Black Rock Arts Foundation’s mission to inspire art, community and civic participation worldwide. It was an evening of revelry in the richness of human expression, generosity of spirit and camaraderie of artists and visionaries.
This opulent gathering of tribes was a celebration of our artistic treasures and vital community spirit! Participants enjoyed an evening of abundant visual delights, auditory pleasures, delectable fare, beguiling libations, and a cornucopia of spectacular people and performances.
