Not your everyday fundraiser, Out of Hand is a hands-on evening full of fun and, hands down, one of the liveliest galas in town. Your reservation includes creative opportunities to fashion your own handwork with guidance from SCC’s Studio artists, plus entry to a top-quality Silent Auction filled with objects handcrafted by nationally known artists, as well art-related packages handpicked for this event. If you’d rather be hands-off, watch amazing demonstrations of artistic prowess and chat with artists firsthand. Then dine on handfuls of delicious specialty fare provided courtesy of our Strip District neighbors as you are entertained by a host of musicians and other “hand celebrities” who make a living with their hands.
Wear something handmade! Don your favorite bespoke jewelry, a handcrafted accessory, or an entire outfit made from scratch. Creative attire is encouraged.
Proceeds from Out of Hand support SCC’s free exhibition, education and arts programming for all ages.
