Scene: Art Unleashed Cocktail Reception

12th Street Catering

The University of the Arts held a reception to showcase the Art Unleashed 2022 at the Art Alliance on Rittenhouse Square last month. Thanks to the UArts students, alumni, staff and faculty whose work was showcased as part of the four day sale. The artwork sold from this sale directly benefited the presenting artist and will further enhance the student experience at the University of the Arts.
