Mayor's Celebration for Arts & Innovation

Collaboration X will be participating in the Mayor's Celebration for Arts & Innovation this Saturday night at the Fox Entertainment Plaza. The Mayor's Celebration is the largest fundraising event in support of the arts in this region. It is a celebration of the artists, organizations and educational institutions that help to give Riverside its identity as the City of Arts and Innovation. It is also a celebration of those who support the arts. As you enter the Fox Entertainment Plaza on the evening of Saturday, October 12, you will be greeted by performances and exhibitions everywhere you look. The culinary arts will be on display, as well, with multiple restaurants serving heavy hors d'oeuvres stationed in the Showcase Exhibit Hall and on the Promenade overlooking Market Street. David St. Pierre and The Menagerie will feature two no-host bars serving beer, wine, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages. Through his generosity, every drink you purchase is part of the evening's fundraising effort.

Jugglers, interactive technology displays, participatory art by the Riverside Community Arts Association and Collaboration X, Artnival games from Division 9, costumed members of the Riverside Dickens Festival, and exhibitions by the Riverside Art Museum, RCAA, Riverside African American Historical Society, March Field Air Museum, UCR ARTSblock, and Art Works will surround you. A silent auction featuring fantastic packages that include signed music memorabilia, performance tickets and artwork by the region's most renowned artists will be even more spectacular than ever.
