As the center of the arts world in Southwest Florida, The Naples Art Association (NAA) is continually reinventing the way its members observe and respond to art, so it only fitting that it does the same with its annual gala.
For the Love of Art is a dramatic, once in-a-lifetime extravaganza for the senses. It will take place on Saturday,February 25 and will feature spectacular live entertainers, interactive high-energy art experiences, delicious cocktails,and culinary masterpieces from four talented chefs, and of course,outstanding works of art. “Wish List” auction items will be scattered throughout, providing guests with the fulfillment of knowing what their contributions have purchased in support of art.“
As a creative organization, we wanted to turn the traditional black-tie fundraiser on its head,” said Aimee Schlehr, CEO/executive director of the NAA. “This year’s For the Love of Art event will allow us to astonish our guests with endless artistic possibilities for an evening they won’t soon forget.”
As always, the NAA will also use this evening as an opportunity to acknowledge those who have made a significant difference to the organization during a brief and meaningful ceremony. The awardswill include The Hirshhorn Award, The Impact Award, and TheGulfshore Life Emerging Art Leader Award.
Don’t miss For the Love of Art’s delectable cuisine, signature cocktails, and great music paired with evocative art.
