Undisclosed brings together 100+ artists - from hot up and coming locals to those known nationally - including celebrities, TSA students, and alumni. Each creates a 12” x 12” original work, signing this only on the back. Upon entry guests receive a raffle ticket then scramble to select their unique piece per the order their number is drawn. The name of the artist is known only after the work is chosen - hence Undisclosed. The $100 ticket includes event entry for a couple, one raffle ticket to take home one original artwork, entertainment, and delicious hors d’oeuvres. An Undisclosed preview will be available to the public on June 14. Stay tuned to Facebook and the TSA website as details are released!
