2017 Art in the Rough


 The DDA is proud to once again be hosting Art in the Rough.  This year’s event will be held in downtown Imlay City, on Third Street, on Saturday, September 30, from 5:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.  The Lapeer Art Association is helping the DDA organize the event 

Tickets to the event are available at a pre-sale cost of $15.  Tickets will be available the night of the event for $20.    The cost of the ticket includes admission into the event and complimentary beer and wine tasting.  At least 15 artists are scheduled to show and sell their works in buildings located along Third Street in Pop Up galleries.  The event is 21 years of age and older. Tickets are available at the City office, Mulefoot Gastropub and the LAA Gift Shop located in Gallery 194.

 New this year is the VIP experience.  Tickets are $50 and include admission to the venue including the wine and beer tasting and a Meet and Greet with the artists from 4:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. at the Mulefoot Gastropub.  During the VIP hour, guests will receive a complimentary commemorative glass, 2 drink tickets for specialty drinks only available at the VIP event, appetizers and a raffle ticket that offers a chance at a piece of art work from a LAA member. VIP members will enjoy music by local musician, Jamie Marvin, and have a chance to meet the participating artists.  Art in the Rough organizers would like to thank the Milnes Auto Group for their sponsorship of the VIP Experience.

Also new this year is entertainment during the main event that includes music performed by Untamed Beauty and a speed painting demonstration by Martina Hahn.  Many of the artists located in the Pop Up Galleries will also offer demonstrations.
