Come party at Somewhat Off the Wall and take home a piece of original art.

The Arts Council's longstanding gala fundraising event is back and more exciting than ever!

Somewhat Off the Wall, a unique art exhibition and party from which guests will take home original works of art, will be held on Sun., Sept. 13, from 5-9 p.m., at 760 Chapel St., New Haven, in the spectacular space that is home to the O'Donnell Company.

This year's event features drawings, jewelry, paintings, photography, pottery, prints, sculpture, and stained glass by 60 outstanding artists who have each donated three pieces of their work.

Then, at 7 p.m. on the night of the party, premium tickets will be numbered, put into a hat, and drawn at random. As each premium ticket-holder's number is called, he or she will select a piece of original artwork to take home.
