The CAC's FastForward Gala encourages guests “to reimagine the present moment and lean into the unknown with vibrance and optimism.”


The past few years may not be something we necessarily want to look back on, which is why the theme of the Contemporary Arts Center’s annual gala this year might be so fitting.

The FastForward Gala encourages guests “to reimagine the present moment and lean into the unknown with vibrance and optimism,” according to the CAC's official announcement.

The gala will be held 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, at the CAC, 44 E. Sixth St., Downtown.

Gala tickets start at $150 and include a chance to see the auction’s works displayed in person along with entertainment, interactive installations and complimentary food catered by local restaurants. Proceeds will go toward keeping the CAC's admission completely free for all guests.

There will be live performances from Siri Imani, Amy Tuttle, DJ OUECHa, Nick Keeling, DJ Sabastooge and Stacey Vest.  

INTERMEDIO, Ray's Aura Portraits, Undwoodly and Haute Air Balloons will provide the interactive art.

And Calliope Sweets, The Eagle, Fausto, Parts & Labor and Red Sesame will be serving up the eats. 

An online art auction that began on Aug. 16 and will continue on to Aug. 30 will also supplement the in-person gala. 

Attire is semi-formal, and the CAC is encouraging futuristic fashion. Masks are required when not eating or drinking, and extras will be provided to anyone who needs one.

Tickets are available now on the Contemporary Arts Center’s website. 

An official "New Future Dance Party" takes place after the gala in the CAC Black Box theater from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Tickets are $20 for the after party.
