You'll have to go to the Arkansas Arts Center's Fountain Fest tonight to see how Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects' winning sketch (above) for the temporary sculpture in the Carrie Remmel Dickinson fountain in front of the building was carried out. The party, with food, drink and music, gets going at 5:30 p.m.

Fountain Fest, now in its fifth year, is a fundraiser sponsored by the Contemporaries group of young Arts Center members. Besides the ticket price of $25, proceeds from raffle tickets go to the purchase of artworks for the AAC Collection. Raffle items include a Louis Vuitton purse valued at $1,000 and a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 23-year-old Bourbon.

AAC's Canvas restaurant will serve heavy hors d'oeuvres, Lost Forty Brewing and Stone's Throw Brewing are supplying the beer and Roxor Gin is making the cocktails. Guitar-vocal duo Luke Johnson and Brian Nahlen will provide the music; museum school instructors will make art and Children's Theatre actors will entertain with a shadow puppet photo booth. And, of course, there's the sculpture to enjoy.

The event runs until 8:30 p.m. Get your tickets at arkansasartscenter.org/fountain-fest or by calling 396-0337.
