Beats & Brushstrokes

Beats & Brushstrokes (7th Annual)

Saturday, April 2nd, 7:00-10:00 PM
Sam Bonds Brewing & Barnlight East

ELAN’s seventh annual fundraiser and celebration of arts leadership! This year we are partnering up with Sam Bonds Brewing and the Barnlight (East) for a block-party style, multidisciplinary night of art and art leadership. Join us for an array of live music, live performances, prints and pots exhibition, silent auction, food and drinks. All proceeds raised from the event, including a dollar of every beer purchase, benefits the UO Chapter of Emerging Leaders in the Arts Network professional development activities, supporting arts leadership development and our annual professional development ArtsVenture in May.

Beats & Brushstrokes not only raises funds for ELAN, but it provides an informal social setting that fosters strong relationships between students, faculty, artists, local businesses, and community members.  Beats & Brushstrokes is a celebratory event that the whole Eugene community takes pride in year after year.

Get ready for the best art party in Eugene!
