Buy Ticket, Pick Art

Buy a ticket, not for a chance to get art, but to really get art!

The YMCA at Virginia Tech is hosting Art To Go, a black tie-optional showcase of the work of emerging and established artists in the Blacksburg, Virginia area.  Buy a ticket, peruse the art, and when your ticket number is called, you make your selection.  If you're one of the first 50 people to arrive at Art To Go, while you meet the artists and preview their art, we're delighted to offer you a free beverage, courtesy of Handshake Media, Incorporated, the parent company of Handshake 2.0.
