The 25th Anniversary FutureFest!
July 17 – 19, 2015
The Dayton Playhouse and theFutureFest 2015 Committees are planning ahead for this very specialFutureFest year. There will be aFutureFest Gala on Thursday, July 16, 2015 to kick off the event. Included at the Gala will be a community art auction and sale.
Dayton Playhouse is now seeking artists to donate pieces in any media with our theme of “Comedy/Tragedy” to be included in the Art Auction.
While local businesses and our patrons donate much of the money needed for this nationally-recognized event, additional fundraising is still a necessity. We are hoping that artists in our community, and outside, will support our efforts to celebrate new work by donating one or more pieces of their work to help us fund this important event. Our artwork theme for this year is Comedy/Tragedy. We are open to submissions in all mediums. Artist may sign their work and are encouraged to suggest a sale price.
Works received early enough may be displayed and some will be sold during our production of the musical Grease, which runs, May 1-17, 2015. Artist names will be published in all FutureFest media communications, on Facebook, our website and our FutureFest programs. Buyers will be asked to display the work they have purchased during our FutureFest kick-off event on July 16 at the Crowne Plaza. Work that has not sold during our production of Grease, will be offered for sale, or auction, FutureFest weekend July 17-19. Submissions qualify as 501c3 donations. All proceeds go to the Dayton Playhouse. Submitting artists will receive free admission to the July 16 event.
