An “Artrageous” Burwell School Holiday Event
December 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm| $35
Ninety-nine for $99! It’s the perfect combination: art, food, drink and music!
Peruse 99 original artworks donated to this Artrageous event — in plenty of time to pick out that unique gift for the holidays. We’ll feature paintings, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, leather goods and weaving…something sure to attract your eye. Every item will be $99! Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and hoppin’ hot music from The Hillborough Jazz Collective at the charming Old Murphey School.
All proceeds will benefit the Burwell School Historic Site’s 2018 Bicentennial Observance of the life of Elizabeth Hobbs Keckly, who entered life in slavery and transcended a life of harsh work and abuse in the Burwell household to achieve her freedom — and earn a role in history as a successful businesswoman, activist, and friend of First Lady Mary Lincoln in the White House.
