Capitol Hill Arts Workshop Presents ArtSmash, an Art-filled Evening to Benefit Children.
The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) presents ArtSmash, an arts celebration, on Saturday, October 2, 2010 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at its historic building on Capitol Hill, 545 7th Street, SE.  The event will include food, libations, and an array of entertainment from dancers to cabaret singers including performances by a cappella group Not What You Think, Taffety Punk Theater Company’s Riot Grrrls: Julius Caesar, and the casts of CHAWbaret and The Mikado. ArtSmash will also offer opportunities for gala-goers to participate in the arts through tango lessons, a fashion show, painting like the Masters, and more.  A silent auction will feature works from local artists and members of the Capitol Hill Art League, unique experiences, and a wide array of prizes from retail items to gift certificates and jewelry.  Proceeds from ArtSmash support CHAW’s tuition assistance, outreach, and education programs.

“CHAW’s ability to provide tuition assistance for every child who needs it is a point of extraordinary organizational pride and is only possible with the continuing support of our community,” said Colleen Jolly, President of CHAW’s Board of Directors. “ArtSmash is a special, fun event that helps CHAW continue its important work of building community through the arts.”
