This year’s Art of Travel theme, Cloud 9, combines the romance of flight with decidedly down-to-earth delectable dishes and handcrafted cocktails created exclusively for this event. Join friends for live music and a silent auction. Mingle with artists in our Pop-Up Shop featuring a unique collection of items crafted by local artist partners and available only at the Art of Travel. Aviation and the wonders of flight have inspired many generations to set their dreams on the sky. Inspired by their optimism, perseverance, and achievements, we are excited to celebrate the 9th Annual Art of Travel gala with you.

Culinary arts steal the show at Art of Travel! Dine your way through the evening with a menu inspired by dreamy clouds and silky skies with the likes of chilled shrimp, crispy pork belly sandwiches, cream puffs and cotton candy.

Live Music

Midnight Piano Band will take the stage at the 2019 Art of Travel. Bringing a throwback to when bands actually played their instruments and sang on stage. It seems hard to believe, but a band with this level of commitment to live sound is becoming quite rare. In the Midnight Piano Band, there are no laptops, no backing tracks, no tricks, and no gimmicks. What you see is what you hear, and what you hear is awesome.”

 

Silent Auction

The Art of Travel silent auction is back on the table once again and will feature great collections of sports memorabilia, travel packages, local excursions, gifts, and more.
