Three Arts Society Members donated original works of art to the Missouri Western Ambassadors’ Night at the Ritz. Leila Hicks, Robin Smith Lin Warner are two of several local artists who will have pieces on display for the Night at the Ritz’ silent auction. To view their artwork and to bid on their pieces, please join them at the event on Friday, April 22.

A fun and artistic experience awaits those who attend. At this year’s event, “Picasso’s Night at the Ritz,” guests will see the Remington Hall atrium transformed into an art gallery and enjoy a number of fun activities. All proceeds benefit scholarships for nontraditional students.

“Picasso’s Night at the Ritz” is a reception from 6-8:30 p.m. and will include Spanish tapas, a cash bar, a silent auction with several works of art, a raffle and a roaming troubadour who will
serenade guests in Spanish. Those who attend may try their hand at reproducing Picasso works, or just enjoy Picasso reproductions and learning about Picasso.

Cost is $35 per person minimum donation. Missouri Western students may attend for $25. To make a reservation, call (816) 271-5646 by Monday, April 18. Advance payment is appreciated.
