Raising Hope for Families with Lyme

Dart for Art 2018 Call for Artists

What is Dart for Art?

Dart for Art is a unique cocktail event in a festive art gallery setting. Guests are assigned a darting number upon arrival.  As the party begins, guests stroll amongst the artwork, mingling with artists while enjoying cocktails and appetizers.  As numbers are randomly announced, guests “DART” for their favorite piece of art. Dart for Art is a wonderful event and a fun filled evening but its core purpose is to raise funds for children and young adults suffering from Lyme disease.

Please visit Dart for Art 2018 to view the 2017 event catalog and event video.

Perks of Donating

  • Exposure on our website, Facebook page, Twitter and email blasts
  • Featured in our Artist Directory showcasing artist shows, artwork and Open Studios.
  • Artist bio and event artwork featured in the event catalog given to each guest
  • Complimentary admission to our Dart for Art event (darting ticket not included).

Submission Requirements

We utilize a jury process to determine a balanced presentation of art. 

  • Artists should email photo(s) or submit art piece(s) with dimensions and medium. Several choices are helpful.  
  • The art will be juried and we will get back to artists within 2 weeks. 
  • Art must be original.

We appreciate early submissions. Early pieces are often used in promotions giving artists additional exposure. Our target is to have 150 art pieces. As a general rule, we’ll accept a maximum of 3 pieces from an artist. We prefer to receive art (that requires framing) framed. Art should be dropped off or mailed to our Burlingame office or delivered to one of our drop-off locations.

Artist support is Critical to the Success of This Event! We appreciate your consideration. Please call or email to donate or to get more information.
