Art on Fire ignites this Saturday May 13th Gala event to kickoff fund-raising campaign for historic fire station renovation project

Art on Fire, an evening event of art, history, food, drinks, entertainment and more – to show us all what Donalsonville’s historic fire station facility can become – will ignite in a fiery display of activity this weekend.

On Saturday, May 13th, from 6 to 8 p.m.,  “Art on Fire”, a fund-raising kickoff gala event to begin the campaign to transform Donalsonville’s historic Fire Station into a community art gallery, museum,  cultural center and event venue, will be held in Donalsonville’s historic fire station located at 220 Woolfork Avenue.

In addition to food, fiery beverages, and entertainment, the May 13th event will offer guests the opportunity to meander through a portion of the facility that has been staged to allow attendees to visualize how the facility can actually become an art gallery, historical museum, cultural center and event venue.

Featured attractions  will include a 75+ piece fine art show and sale, museum exhibits of Indian artifacts, images of the days after Hurricane Michael, and historic Seminole County photos from the past 100 years – plus a memorial exhibit of the Alday tragedy – fifty years later.  A blacksmith and a potter will also be on hand showcasing their talents.

So get fired up, get your tickets, and join us on Saturday, May 13th. Tickets are $75 per person and a limited number is still available at the Donalsonville News, the chamber of Commerce and Donalsonville City Hall.
