Young Professional hosts 4th Annual "Time for Art" tonight

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Young Professionals will host their 4th Annual "Time for Art" event on Wednesday Dec.17 at 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

This event will take place at the Bay Gallery, Corn Center and CSU Department of Art.

The purpose is to raise awareness of  art in the community while promoting community service.

Artists donated their work and in return the artists will be considered for awards and other networking opportunities.

Over 33 pieces of art will be showcased and up for auction.

You will be able to bid on valuable works of art with volunteer hours versus money.

Last year, this event rose 2,350 service hours for the Columbus Region.

Artwork will be given to the attendee that committed the most hours and will be tracked through United Way throughout the year.

This event is open to everyone and is free for Young Professionals members and $15 for non-members.
