Pinot to Picasso

pinot-dancingOver 500 guests come together each spring in support of the Arts Council of Princeton’s Anne Reeves Fund, which supports Community Arts Initiatives and the Artist-in-Residence Program. The event, typically held in a raw space transformed by a talented décor committee, includes a salon-style exhibition, gourmet tastings, wines from around the world, local beers and dancing.

One of the highlights of the evening is the Tombola, a drawing of artworks contributed by a select group of local artists. The number of Tombola tickets available is limited to the number of pieces of art. Tombola ticket holders, chosen at random, have 60 seconds to select one work of art to take home.
