The Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association will host the inaugural Artists & Artisan Tour on Thursday, June 26, 2014 from 6 — 8:30 p.m.
"The Artists and Artisan Tour is similar to a progressive dinner; neighbors and friends will move from historic home to home to enjoy wine, appetizers and art," says a spokesperson.
The Artists & Artisan Tour's mission is to raise funds for downtown Savannah public safety initiatives. "Led by the Downtown Neighborhood Association, the goal is to allocate funds toward new lighting, security cameras, increased foot patrol and the Neighborhood Crime Watch."
The Tour features three historic homes along Gaston Street as well as the Savannah Law School, where the Tour will begin and end.
Through a partnership with ARC (Savannah Artists Resource Collective), a group of Savannah artists will display and sell work, including: Dan Kaufman, Michael W. Ellison, Heather MacRae-Trulson, Adam Winnie, William Armstrong, Melinda Borysevicz, Jerome Meadows, Abby Leigh Johnson, Angela K. Coonce, Judy Mooney, Tracy Concha, Dicky Stone, Meryl Truett, Fran Thomas, Jeanne Elizabeth Svendson, Juliana Peloso, Kelley Hagemes, Jill Brougher, W. Gerome Temple, Daniel E. Smith.
Attendees may park and pick up tickets at the Savannah Law School. Wine provided by Habersham Beverage and food by Local 11ten Food & Wine, Leoci’s Trattoria, Ruan Thai and Jepson Café. The Tour will culminate with an after-party at the Savannah Law School featuring live music and a dessert surprise.
Tickets are $60 per person and may be purchased online at www.SavannahDNA.org/artists. Advance ticket purchase is suggested, as a limited number are available. Attendees may pick up tickets at the Savannah Law School beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 26.
