“THE GREATEST COMMOTION OF CREATIVITY”
[KER-FUHF-UHL]
(Noun): A commotion or fuss
(Trans Verb): To put into disorder or disarray; ruffle or disarrange
(Synonyms): Brouhaha, hoopla, outburst, ruckus

ABOUT THE EVENT
ChiArts’ annual spring benefit and presentation welcomes over 400 supporters, arts partners, and civic leaders to join the “creative commotion” to raise funds for ChiArts’ tuition-free conservatory programs.

The evening shines the spotlight on ChiArts’ scholar-artists, who will showcase their talents through open studios, poetry stations, and pop-up performances. Guests can explore these various exhibits throughout the venue while enjoying a cocktail reception and elegant seated dinner.

Funds raised through this event will help ensure the next generation of diverse, talented artists can continue to experience ChiArts Dance, Creative Writing, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts conservatories.
