Be part of Painting our Future Together, and join the Mennello Museum of American Art for the 2nd annual White Canvas Party, on November 7th! We’re planning a one-of-a-kind virtual experience this year…

That afternoon, you’ll cruise by the museum to pick up your gourmet package including a La Femme du Fromage plate & bottle of wine from Quantum Leap Winery, and pose for a photo op if you like. Then head back home or to a private watch party to get ready for the program online. VIPs will also enjoy delicious appetizers from Bulla Gastrobar, dessert from Nothing Bundt Cakes, a colorful floral arrangement from Lee James Floral, and first chance to purchase art.

Your hosts and speakers for the evening will be coming to you from the museum – plus you’ll hear from the artists, sponsors, and some of our local & national partners. Beats throughout the event will be provided by DJStereo77, and to top off the evening we’ll jam to Beemo – a favorite Indie-Folkfest band.

The White Canvas Gallery art by 30 of Orlando’s best artists – available for online purchase or bid to benefit the artists and the museum – will be on view at the museum from October 2 to November 7.

WHITE CANVAS PARTY is a benefit by the Friends of the Mennello Museum, a 501c3 supporting the education initiatives and exhibitions of the museum.

Virtual/online program from home: begins at 7:00pm
