What’s different this year:

This year’s LiveART will feature live art making by several returning artists, including those from Carmel Art Association who’ve been part of LiveART for eight years now. This year we’ve been graced by more artists (including several founders) from other arts groups like Open Ground Studios, Emerging Artists Alliance of Monterey, Play Full Ground, and ArtWorks.

All art done during LiveART is for sale to benefit YAC’s program.

Art goes up on the LiveART Laundry Line as it’s completed for sale ($50 and under) – a great way to collect pieces from your favorite artists. Some single pieces will take longer and will have a silent auction sheets next to them as the artist produces the art in real time. Art from the Collective and mentors/founders will also be on display on the gallery walls.

This is our best yearly party EVER brought to you by the generosity and talent of 36 artists and musicians to benefit YAC, and to entertain and thank our community for supporting the arts.
