Summer Celebration: It's Poppin' 

Join us for Batesville Area Arts Council's annual Summer Celebration: It's Poppin' fundraiser on June 8, 2024 at The Loft on Main Street (267 E Main St. 3rd floor), presented by First Community Bank. 


Summer Celebration is back with a pop! It's Poppin' is a celebration of pop art, pop music, and all things pop culture. Guests will enjoy dinner, drinks, and live music followed by a pop music dance party with a live DJ. Highlights of the night will include a pop-up art studio where guests can make their own pop art, photo ops with iconic pop art imagery to commemorate the night, and BAAC's signature silent auction featuring unique art pieces from local artists. Throw on a pop of color or pop your collar and join us for a night of creativity, entertainment, and philanthropy!


Proceeds from Summer Celebration will support BAAC's mission to provide educational programs, art exhibitions, workshops, and community art projects for Batesville and the surrounding areas. BAAC recently launched a capital campaign to expand its workshop space to meet growing demand for arts programming. A portion of the funds raised at Summer Celebration will go to support this important project for our community.


Tickets are $60 or $50 for BAAC members, and are available at the BAAC Gallery on Main (226 E Main St), and online at Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. For more information call (870) 793-3382. This event is sponsored by First Community Bank, Citizens Bank, FutureFuel Chemical Co., Lyon College, University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville, Merchants & Planters Bank, and Batesville Printing.
