It’s an opportunity to create art, learn about The Arc Artisans and raise money for the program’s art supplies. The Creativity Uncorked celebration is being held at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center March 10, during Disability Awareness Month.

This is the second year for the event, created as an opportunity to build awareness in the southeastern corner of the county, while simultaneously raising funds for the Arc Artisans program, which teaches adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to create pieces of art with help from a professional teacher.

Attendees will be able to choose from a variety of art projects to create, such as mixed media or painting.

In a separate area will be an awareness room so visitors can learn more about The Arc of Greater Boone Co. Items created by the Arc Artisans will be for sale, including selections of paintings, painted scarves, pillows, clay platters and bowls. Approximately 30 artists participate in the program, and most create each piece of art as a team.

Appetizers and wine will be served along with music, a wine pull and silent auction.

A limited number of $25 tickets are being sold along with table, event and wine sponsors.

“We’d like this to be a fundraiser, but we wanted to make it accessible enough because it really, primarily, is an awareness event,” said Marcia Clutter, who handles community relations for The Arc.

Last year, nearly 100 people attended the event and created pieces of art together.

“It was a huge success,” Clutter said. “People were responding to that better than we ever could have dreamed.”

Tickets are available at the SullivanMunce website or by calling The Arc of Greater Boone Co..


When: 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. March 10

Where: SullivanMunce Cultural Center, 225 W. Hawthorne St., Zionsville
