SPACES In Wonderland
Annual Benefit + Art Auction + Costume Party
November 04 - November 05, 2017
SPACES honors Fred & Laura Ruth Bidwell during our Annual Benefit + Art Auction + Costume Party, SPACES In Wonderland. Join our madcap adventures in Wonderland (Hingetown) as we chase the White Rabbit, race the Dodo Bird, get tied up with the Tweedles, wrap with the bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beat the Queen of Hearts at her own game. Dress up as your favorite Lewis Carroll character or glam it up cocktail party-style for one of the most spirited art events of the year. Guests will criss cross through the SPACES galleries lined with work from over 75 artists, including a specially curated section where the proceeds from art sales will go directly to the SPACES capital campaign.
