Agency people may be a lot of fun but they're also professional. So are our regular events, ranging from panels of our industry’s best discussing hot topics to casual after-hours mixers where we basically goof off while we network.

Art Bash 2017

  • Makers 92 Lenora Street Seattle, WA, 98121 United States (map)

Art Bash is back!

Each year we throw one of our best parties of the year to raise money for our scholarship benefitting an underpriviliged student striving for a communications-related degree at Western Washington University. We give local agencies a blank canvas and they give us art to auction.

This time around we're adding some ADDY spirit to the mix—and live art experiences!

Beer, wine, and light apps included


Top talent: ADDY Gold!

The top winners from the 2017 American Advertising Awards will be creating art for our auction based on the theme for the 2018 show: Seattle Retro.

The gold-winning contributors include:

New this year: BrushCapades!

Each attendee will receive a canvas to participate in an instructor-led live painting experience.

Get Virtual: Tilt Brush demo!

Try your hand at creating art in Virtual Reality on our amazing Tilt Brush demo stage provided by Portal VR.

Plus: Live VR art!

Local VR artist Michael Kacena will be creating a 3D composition—live on our virtual stage.

Featuring: Group canvas!

All attendees will have a chance to make their artistic contribution to our master canvas which we'll be auctioning off at the end of the evening.

Get ready for the most entertaining Art Bash yet!
