We invite you to experience a Moulin Rouge-style evening of art and entertainment.

Wander the streets of Paris and Paint the Town Rouge, enjoying artwork by locally and internationally distinguished artists and by students from ARCK’s in-school arts integration programs. Dress to dance the night away with the best DJ in town. Bid on an array of exciting items in our silent auction. Savor an assortment of drinks and exquisite heavy hors d’oeuvres. Capture your lively (and risqué) selves in our photo booth with Belle Époque dress-up props. And finally, enjoy dessert from Ben and Jerry’s amazing ice cream sundae bar. Our pre-event VIP reception at 6 pm will feature oysters and fine champagne!

Highlights from last year’s gala:

  • We raised over $100,000 for ARCK’s programming, thanks to the generosity of supporters like you.
  • Percy Fortini-Wright, a Boston-based muralist, dazzled guests with a live demonstration for a graffiti-inspired piece, which was then auctioned off. Two of ARCK’s students from Gardner Pilot Academy assisted him!
  • Paul Goodnight received our Global Citizenship Award, which honors artists who exemplify ARCK’s dedication to fostering culture and community through art.
