On October 22 from 5-8pm, CREATE is launching its newest experience: FIRE WORKS! In partnership with the Central Rivers Farmshed and Whitefeather Organics, this family-friendly event will provide participants with the unique opportunity to make and take art. Each attendee will receive randomly assigned coordinates that correspond to an original work of art (displayed on grids and lit only by bonfire) that they will get to take home! If you love it, this art is yours to keep. If you prefer to swap it, exchange it as many times as you like at our Trading Wall. This experience is fun for the whole family! This alcohol-free event will include fresh farm-to-table brick oven pizzas available for purchase.
Individual and family tickets are available for $10 and $25 respectively. The individual ticket includes admission to the event and one original piece of art. The family ticket includes admission and two original pieces of art. Families, if you would like to take home more than two canvases at the event, please let us know prior to October 14 and we will do our best to accommodate you. Tickets are available online at www.cwtickets.com or by calling CW Tickets at 715-498-2339. Note: Canvases will be subject to availability for anyone who purchases their ticket after Friday, October 14.
