Get ready for an ARTrageous good time at the Erie Art Museum: the fundraiser with live performances, music, food, and drink – and, of course, remarkable art.

Erie Art Museum’s Party On the Patio has been replaced in a bigger and better way, in order to make their fundraising more interactive. Experience ARTrageous as you walk through art in all its forms.

Erie Art Museum’s Party On the Patio has been replaced in a bigger and better way, in order to make their fundraising more interactive. Experience ARTrageous as you walk through art in all its forms; there is sure to be something to please everyone. Featured artists each have unique displays representing their exceptional talents and culture.

Begin the evening with the Old Customs House steps on State Street, decorated by Jesse and Ricardo. Tabla for Two, featuring Masood Omari and Abigail Adams Greenway, will perform in the lower Customs House. Meet Jose Picayo, a renowned New York photographer, and see his exhibit.

Local artist Alison Stinley’s work will also be on display, as well as the 93rd Annual Spring Show.

Relax and dance to Matty B and the Dirty Pickles’ special reunion show. Enjoy the music of Tasana Camara, who is not only a keeper of West African traditions, but also a griot musical storyteller and healer. Continue your evening with a mesmerizing fire-hoop routine by Jennifer Dennehy.

ARTrageous also includes an ART-tini bar, as well as beer provided by Magic Hat Brewing Company and food by Make It Fabulous. Every nook and cranny of the Erie Art Museum will be infused with art, refreshments, and excitement. – Elisa Kownacki

7 to 11 p.m. // Tickets are $100 for members and $125 for non-members; non-members will be mailed an individual membership following the event // erieartmuseum.org
