2nd Annual Drop The Ball @ ART WORKS - A New Years Eve Party for the Arts
Monday, December 31, 2012 at 8:00 PM - Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 1:00 AM (EST)
Come dressed-to-impress and Drop the Ball at ART WORKS New Years Eve Party where you can rock to live music by the Robbin Steel Band and party like it's 1999 (or 2013)! And here's what's included in the ticket price:
Heavy hor d'oeuvres from Richmond's favorite restaurants
Champagne toast in a commemorative glass
New Years Eve noisemakers
Dessert and Coffee
2 art raffle tickets
(you can buy more for only $1 each online or at the party)
Enjoy designer drinks at the cash bar!
And there's a Photo Booth by Hoot Media.
The art raffle is a fun way to acquire some special art! We start you off with 2 raffle tickets. Buy as many more as you like and drop them in the cup beside your favorite piece of artwork. After midnight, while you’re sipping coffee and dessert, the winning tickets will be drawn from each raffle cup.
All proceeds from the event go to the maintenance and repairs of the art center to provide a safe, affordable workspace and galleries for Richmond artists.
What a great way to ring in the brand New Year!
ART WORKS is conveniently located 1/2 mile from downtown Richmond across the Mayo (14th Street Bridge). Parking is free for the party.

We are hosting Drop the Ball @ ART WORKS to raise money for the maintenace and repair of the art center to provide a safe, affordable workspace and galleries for Richmond artists.
ART WORKS is a full service art center located in historic Manchester, just ½ mile from downtown Richmond across the 14th Street Bridge. We represent over 100 Virginia artists as well as national and international artists in monthly shows.
There are 75 studios and 5 galleries at ART WORKS. The public is welcome to spend an afternoon viewing art, visiting with artists and can even see art being made. The public is invited to our monthly all-media, juried art shows, the 4th Friday of each month and are encouraged to participate in our programs, shows and events.
ART WORKS provides a youth art program. This program, Children’s Art in the Neighborhood (CAN) is open to children ages 6 – 13.
ART WORKS is involved in community programs and partners with Easter Seals UCP, the Richmond SPCA and with the Earth Day in Manchester Festival.
Our mission is to provide artists with a full service art center where art can be created, displayed and promoted. It is also our goal to bring art, music, events, and programs that enrich the city and the people who live in and visit our community.
