With the generosity of top sponsor, First Dakota National Bank, Yankton Area Arts is hosting an event on Saturday, July 19 like no other: Meridian Dîner en Blanc–simply white, extraordinarily artful. Imagine a magical evening of all-white elegance atop the Meridian Bridge…tables and chairs fitted with crisp white linens; white lights aglow; guests dressed in all-white enjoying a fine French-inspired catered picnic; brilliant music by the 15-piece Bridge City Brass; and professional artists Ari Albright, Jessi Koch, Scott Luken, and Cheryl Peterson-Halsey creating art “live.” This inaugural upscale gathering will not only be an artistic experience on Meridian Bridge, enhancing the function and value of the city’s premier public space, it will also provide fundamental financing for the continuation and growth of Yankton Area Arts programming. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at www.YanktonAreaArts.org or at G.A.R. Gallery.
