The Creative Alliance presents more than 20 exhibitions per year, featuring work by artists at different points in their careers who work in a range of styles and media. We look for new ways to present what they do, new artists for them to collaborate with, and innovative ways to expand the meaning of their work.

Follow the yellow brick road, dance with the Lollipop Guild, roll with the Wheelers, and wander through OZ!

L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, written in 1900, inspired 14 of his own books in the series and countless other movies, adventures, TV shows, stage performances, and much more. The majestic land of OZ has captured our imaginations into adulthood. From Judy Garland’s Dorothy to Michael Jackson’s Scarecrow in The WIZ, this year’s Marquee Ball celebrates them ALL! 

Click your sparkling heels or ruby slippers and find yourself in The Patterson Theater transformed for a night of dancing, performances on two stages, a silent art auction, open studios, treats galore, and fabulous attire!
