KidStart, Livingston Arts to 'Light Up the Night' August 14 at Rockin’ the Arts 2014

The staff and boards of Livingston Arts and KidStart are excited to announce that Rockin’ the Arts 2014 will be held at The Wadsworth Estate on August 14 and the theme is “Light Up The Night.”

This fundraiser, hosted by Livingston Arts and KidStart, will benefit both children and art. Help us celebrate local artistic talents, local flavors, and music. Last year’s event was a sold-out success with 200 attendees.
The event will once again feature a live auction as the focal point of the evening, hosted by Teitsworth Auctions. New this year, a silent auction and Chinese auction of smaller items will be offered throughout the evening. Kelley Teitsworth joined the planning and event committee this year as consultant, sharing her knowledge in marketing, event planning, and auctions.
Applications are being accepted from artists who would like to participate. Click here to download an application, or call 243.6785. Entry deadline is Friday, April 18.

“I am looking forward to the variety of pieces we receive from artists, and their creative interpretation of light,” notes Livingston Arts Director Chris Norton. This can be something that is actually functional such as a light/lamp/torch or perhaps a painting that captures the delicate warm light of a sunset.

Proceeds from the auction and ticket sales for the event will be divided equally between Livingston Arts and KidStart. Livingston Arts enriches life in Livingston County by encouraging and promoting the arts and cultural activities. KidStart's special services, day care, and Head Start programs are unique because they serve children both with and without disabilities in an integrated setting.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For updates on the event or to become involved, visit or call Livingston Arts at (585) 243-6785.
