Now that summer has finally begun, we need to start thinking about its end. Well, not really, but you should know that in late September, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden will be the site of the season’s crowning event, Avant Garden. And because this year marks the Garden’s 25th birthday, Avant Garden will be bigger and better than ever before.
Music, art, gourmet food and specialty cocktails will delight the guests who will mingle, dance and maybe bid on one-of-a-kind auction items at this annual event that benefits the Walker Art Center’s award-winning artistic and educational programming.
And, you could go for free!
That’s right. You have a chance to win Silver Key tickets to this year’s Avant Garden on September 21.
All you have to do is submit to the Avant Garden Facebook page a personal photo of your favorite sculpture in the Garden and explain why. A public vote will determine the best photo/caption combination, and the winner will receive two Silver Key tickets to Avant Garden.
The Silver Key experience, valued at $100 per ticket, includes late-night sweets and savories, two complimentary drink tickets, music, dancing and access to the silent auction. It also includes entrance to the After Party, from 11:00 pm until 1:00 am, with a VIP lounge, complimentary appetizers and a private cash bar.
Upload a picture of your favorite sculpture in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden to the Avant Garden Facebook page from now until Sunday, July 7, 2013. Explain why the sculpture is your favorite.
Voting will open Monday, July 8, 2013 and will close Friday, July 19, 2013.
The winner will be notified via email and announced the week of July 22.
