Beats & Brushstrokes 2012
Beats and Brushstrokes, the annual fundraiser for the University of Oregon student chapter of the Emerging Leaders in the Arts Network (ELAN), will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2012 from 7pm – 11pm at the Old Whiteaker Firehouse. The Beats and Brushstrokes silent auction will feature local handmade works of art created from repurposed vinyl records and record sleeves. All funds raised from the auction will go to support ELAN’s community arts programming and arts and culture professional development activities for UO students.
This year's live local music highlights include Portland band The Sleeper Smiles and the record spinning grooves of Eugene’s own DJ Leftovers and DJ Place. A $5.00 cover charge covers full admission plus free food and drinks from a donated beer/wine bar. The Beats & Brushstrokes fundraiser is a great opportunity to affordably add to your art collection, build your arts network, socialize with other creatives, and support your local arts community!
