The Patron Party begins at 6pm, with the Gala following from 7pm - 10pm. Throughout the evening, there will be performances by NOCCA students, faculty, and alumni, including Young Alum Co-Chairs Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft and their band, Alexis and The Samurai.
 
ART&SOUL is co-chaired by Anne & Paul Candies and Ana & Juan Gershanik. In addition to Alexis and Sam, Gary Solomon Jr. serves as a Young Alum Co-Chair. A full schedule for ART&SOUL is as follows:

A special feature of this year's ART&SOUL event is a silent auction, powered by AuctionsByCellular. AuctionsByCellular allows guests to bid on items with their cell phones, no matter where they are -- on campus or off. Guests are encouraged to bring their phones to the event, and a staff member will quickly register those device when guests arrive. For those who'd rather not bid by phone, that's okay, too: AuctionsByCellular's "personal shoppers" can place bids on their behalf.
 
Tickets to ART&SOUL start at $65 for Young Supporters (NOCCA fans 30 and under, please.) Gala tickets are $100, and tickets to the Patron Party and Gala are $250. Tickets can be purchased online at NOCCAInstitute.com or by phone at 504 940 2900.
