Join us on Thursday, May 10 from 7 - 10 PM in Grand Park at Grand Boulevard Town Center for an evening with Shawn Mullins and his band, Soul Carnival, to benefit the Underwater Museum of Art (UMA). A VIP pre-party will be held from 6 - 7 PM.
The UMA is the first presentation of the Cultural Arts Alliance's 'Art in Public Spaces' program and will augment South Walton Artificial Reef Association's mission of creating marine habitat and expanding fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, cultural, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors in South Walton.
Several of the seven sculpture designs selected by jury for permanent exhibition in the first installation of the UMA will be on display at the fundraiser and throughout the weekend during the ArtsQuest Fine Arts Festival before they are transferred to Orange Beach, AL to prepare for their deployment into the Gulf in a one-acre permit patch of seabed off Grayton Beach State Park. Raffle items include a mural created specifically for the event by internationally renowned artist, Billy the Artist, an UMA Sculpture Sponsorship valued at $5,000, and more! Raffle tickets can be purchased with event tickets online as well as on-site at the event.
The event begins with a VIP hour from 6 - 7 PM where VIP ticket holders are invited to enjoy a meet and greet with the artists, live music, open bar and light bites, as well as preferred seating for the Shawn Mullins concert. Doors will open at 7 PM for general admission event goers to bid on raffle items and sample special menu items while enjoying an intimate concert experience with Shawn Mullins and his band, Soul Carnival. A cash bar will be available featuring signature Art Week cocktails. VIP tickets are $100 / person. General admission tickets are $50 / person in advance and $60 / at the door (if available). Tickets can be purchase in advance online.
