Artists Evening of Sharing

Printer-friendly version

Each year, usually in the month of February, the City of Brisbane invites local artists to share their work with the Brisbane public at the Artists Evening of Sharing event, held at Mission Blue Center.  At this annual event, Brisbane artists will showcase music, theater, tango, operatic and caberet singing, images of visual artwork, photography, and film.  Showcasing and honoring Brisbane’s art advocates allows the community to understand the rich diversity and depth of talent that surrounds it and stimulates and exchange of ideas about art.

Admission for the Artists Evening of Sharing is free, with a reception and refreshments usually following the event.

If you haven't already done so, make sure you come celebrate Brisbane’s creative spirit!

The Arts Advocate Award is presented during Intermission at this event, and honors a committed Brisbane citizen who takes leadership in organizing, promoting, supporting, and developing arts programming in our community.  This shows a commitment to the arts and to the citizens of Brisbane.  They are generous with their time, ideas, fundraising, and financial support for artists and are both advocates and visionaries for artists and the area of the arts.  In December 2010, it was decided at the Arts Subcommittee that City employees are eligible for the Arts Advocate Award 3 to 5 years after ending service with the City.  Program details are available from the Brisbane City Manager’s Office, 50 Park Place, or call (415) 508-2114.
