Art en Blanc 2019
Please note, this event has expired.
This unique evening picnic fundraiser for the arts is located in beautiful, historic Woodmont Park. Grab your white bucks or spectator pumps, adorn yourself in white (brilliant to khaki), and prepare to experience a night you won’t forget.
Now celebrating its 7th year, this unusual event is a potpourri of visual delights, spellbinding entertainment, spectacular music from five-star Phase 5 Band, and a collection of fascinating people who appreciate and celebrate the arts.
Art en Blanc evolved from a Frenchman, François Pasquier, who first imagined Le Dîner en Blanc in 1988, 30+ years ago. He had just returned to Paris from Tahiti and wanted to celebrate with friends, so he chose to host a picnic at a public venue. To easily identify guests, he suggested they wear white. The evening was a tremendous success and has grown to a guest list of more than a thousand. Hundreds of major cities around the globe have followed his model.
Art en Blanc in Temple Terrace is an enchanting picnic indeed, but it is also a unique celebration of the arts under a majestic canopy of trees. Guests are required to adorn themselves in white, assemble a delightful picnic of their choosing along with all the accoutrements and refreshments needed, and collect their most interesting, creative besties to assemble a tablescape designed to win the fierce yet friendly competition for a trophy. White tables draped in white, white chairs are furnished.
The Temple Terrace Arts Council, with generous help from friends, produces a magical night filled with entertainment— en plein air artists, art raffles, wine/craft beer pulls and a few secret surprises await you as does a special gift for couples who reserve their place by March 17.
Tickets are available now through April 10, 2019, and will not be available at the door. Singles $35, Couples are $70, tables of 8 $240, tables of 10 $300. Reservations by March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) include an art raffle ticket to be used at the event, 1 per couple, 4 per table of 8, 5 per table of 10.
