Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will host the school’s annual fundraising event, The pARTy: A Scene in Green, on Saturday, April 23, with the 2016 edition returning to the Watkins campus.

The pARTy, which celebrates the creative in Watkins students and the Nashville community, includes a 6 p.m. cocktail reception and dinner from The Chef and I. The Karlton Taylor Quartet will provide music for The pARTY, thanks to sponsorship by Arts at the Airport. The evening will also feature a “gallery tour” of art from the Watkins collection and student work for sale.

This year’s Scene in Green theme reflects efforts to support a campus greening initiative (the first phase in a long-range plan for campus enhancement), in addition to benefiting the school’s education and outreach programs.
