 Young @ Art

Greysolon Plaza Ballroom

School of Fine Arts Benefit

The UMD School of Fine Arts (SFA) benefit “Young at Art” will be held on Friday, January 29 at Duluth’s historic Greysolon Plaza Ballroom, 231 East Superior Street. The doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The event will raise money for SFA scholarships and six SFA units: Art and Design, Music, Theatre, Fine Arts Academy, Tweed Museum of Art, and Glensheen, the historic Congdon estate.

Tickets are $50 and are available by calling (218) 726-8561 or online:

Attendees will enjoy both a silent auction and a live auction. Guests will bid on everything from a catered dinner in the Glensheen dining room to fine art created by SFA professors. Other items to bid on include a croquet tournament for up to sixteen people at Glensheen and a sail on a tall ship next summer.

The evening will also include demonstrations and performances by the units. “From opera to jazz to theatre, the students’ performances at this event will demonstrate why the School of Fine Arts is a premier cultural center for fine arts in the Northland,” says Jack Bowman, Dean of the School of Fine Arts.

UMD’s School of Fine Arts offers undergraduate degrees in Art & Design, Music, and Theatre and two graduate degrees: the Master of Fine Arts in Art (graphic design) and the Master of Music (music education or performance).

The “Young at Art” benefit is generously sponsored by Blackwoods and Pro Print.
