Upturn Arts’ annual fundraising dinner, Appetite for Art, is an evening of food and fun.

By attending our event, you will help us offer tuition scholarships to more than 400 young artists.

This experience includes a 5-star multi-course dinner with wine pairings, an exclusive patron cocktail party, student and alums performances, and live and silent exclusive auctions. Past partners include Atchafalaya Restaurant and the Furloughed Four and Artisan Wines, with performances by house band Upturn Funk and live painting for auction by John Bukaty.
