Palates and Palettes

A Fundraiser to benefit the Academy Center of the Arts



The Palates and Palettes fundraiser returns to the Academy Center of the Arts this April, but with a twist!


Ticket holders will be able to engage in experiential art and culture at four Academy campus locations. You can hone your improv skills on the Historic Stage, watch a painting come to life in the Harrington Galleries, take part in a photo reveal in our new lobby, and enjoy live music in our outdoor courtyard. Each location and activity will be paired with food and beverage tastings to create a cohesive cultural experience.


Tickets include access to the event, food and beverage tastings, and each experience. Non-drinking tickets do not include alcoholic beverage tastings.


Art & Tasting Stations:

Station 1: Live bluegrass music and chainsaw art demonstrations in the Historic Theatre Courtyard, paired with BBQ by Fifth & Federal Station and bourbon tastings

Station 2: An Improv comedy workshop on the Historic Theatre stage, paired with Mediterranean Food by Tahini’s and martini tastings

Station 3: A live painting demo by local artist Arnulfo Jacinto in the Harrington Gallery Building, paired with a Grazing Table of fruits, veggies, and dips by Purple Door Catering and wine tastings

Station 4: An interactive mural reveal in the Historic Theatre Lobby, paired with Cinnamon buns by Cinn City and coffee
