Allied Arts is gearing up for ARTini, the annual martini-tasting event and art auction that raises critical funds for the arts. This year’s event will have a “Roaring 20s” theme to celebrate 20 years of ARTini. The 2023 ARTini will be held on April 21 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Oklahoma City Convention Center. This year’s event, resented by Paycom and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, will be Oklahoma City’s largest cocktail competition and art auction, bringing together local restaurants, entertainment and artists for a dynamic evening benefitting the arts in our community. Along with taste-testing custom cocktails from several of Oklahoma City’s most popular restaurants, guests can bid on one-of-a-kind art by local artists and participate in the silent auction to win unique experiences, exquisite wine, fine jewelry and more. “ARTini is consistently one of the most memorable and enjoyable events in Oklahoma City,” said event co-chair Brittany Ward, spearheading the event with Katherine Zajac. “The atmosphere always lends itself to a great evening, and we’re excited to celebrate this momentous occasion in Downtown Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma City Convention Center. Each year, ARTini helps Allied Arts fund programs that touch the lives of more than one million people, including dynamic community performances and events, and valuable arts experiences for children, veterans and the elderly, many in underserved areas. Allied Arts helps partner organizations offer free or reduced price events and provide innovative arts education across the state, enabling more members of our communities to experience the arts.
