Splash! Into an Evening of Fun to Support History and Education at the Gig Harbor History Museum

The Gig Harbor History Museum (HHM) is pleased to announce its Fifth Annual Splash! Art at the Museum fundraising event on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This exciting event of fine art, music, and delicious food and drink supports the exhibits and educational programs presented in the HHM throughout the year.

The HHM will present the highly entertaining auctioneer, Jim Borgen. The guest juror this year is the distinguished Bob Sullivant, a glass artist and past chair of the Gig Harbor Arts Commission. Not to be missed this year are two very special Art Splashes, “hands-on art experiences” available to the highest bidder: Dennis Cox, a former PLU Art Professor, is offering a portrait of a person or a pet of your choosing; Seattle artist Barry Connolly is offering an 'outdoor sculpture experience' for 10 people to construct their own wire mesh, and quick-drying cement sculpture, rounded off with an authentic Paella dinner. There will also be a silent auction, all accompanied by wine, music and delectable “Taste of Gig Harbor” appetizers provided by select Gig Harbor restaurants and accompanied by spirits from the Heritage Distilling Company.

Thank you to the 2014 Splash Sponsors Morrison House Sotheby's International Realty, Pilkey-Hopping & Ekberg, Jane Koler, and Heron's Key!
