Demonstrate… and Donuts
Thursday, January 16, 2020 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
On Thursday, January 16, 2020 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Scottsdale Gallery Association honors first responders through their first Gold Palette ArtWalk of the New Year and in continued celebration of the organization’s 45th season. The event will serve as a fundraiser to benefit the 100 Club of Arizona, a non-profit organization that has been providing assistance to statewide public safety agencies, officers, firefighters, EMT/paramedics and their families since 1968.
Themed “Demonstrate… and Donuts,” this special Gold Palette ArtWalk will feature donut-sampling opportunities at many of the Scottsdale Arts Districts’ participating galleries along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue. Local donut shops are donating the sweet treats, and entertainment includes traditional bagpipe musical performances and demonstrations from local artists.
“We are indebted to the protection and safety that our Scottsdale Police and Fire Departments provide to residents and businesses throughout the city,” according to Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “This event is a fun and unique way for us to engage the community, thank these first responders for their service and give back to them for all they do for us.”
The following galleries will offer donuts samples and demonstrations from local artists:
