Notable Moments: The event theme, “Forces of Attraction,” complemented the core mission of Artlink – to draw together those larger forces that make art possible from across the state, including the contributions of artists, donors, businesses, collectors and advocates. The never-before-seen 80,000 square foot venue at Park Central was transformed into an elevated arts experience as guests immersed themselves in visual, performing, fashion, culinary and musical works.
