Instruments of Art Celebration & Auction

Instruments of Art was a special event for Tidewater Arts Outreach for eight years.  We remain tremendously humbled and grateful to the artists who contributed amazing artwork, to our 6th, 7th and 8th year hosts, Decorum Furniture, to our sponsors and to our board, committee, volunteers and many supporters.  We are retooling this event for future years.  Our goals are to create an event that raises awareness about our work at Tidewater Arts Outreach, raises needed funds and that honors the artists, sponsors and contributors involved.
