Welcome to For the Love of Art 2018: Embracing Community!

We are thrilled to be honoring individuals and organizations that have made significant and lasting contributions to the arts in Plano at our annual fundraiser, For the Love of Art. This exciting event will be held on Saturday, November 3 at the Collin College Spring Creek Campus Conference Center beginning at 6:30 pm. Our honorary chairs this year are Judy and Bob Drotman who are long-time supporters of the ArtCentre. The event chair is Scott Fischer, who has a great committee to back him up. Once again, Collin College art students are creating beautiful, one of a kind centerpieces for each table at the event.  

The event will include dinner, entertainment by Collin College staff and students, live auction, a silent auction of art generously donated by well-known artists from throughout the Metroplex, and a presentation of awards.
