The Magical Mystery Tour party is waiting to take you away on April 13

The McColl Center for Visual Art is hosting its signature spring fundraising gala, “Studio Party 13: Magical Mystery Tour,” at 7 p.m. April 13.  

Partygoers can view the offerings of contemporary art for sale while taking a trip through eight “Fab Four” themed artist studios. Proceeds support local artists and the center’s residency program. 

Event chairs are Olga Faison, Blair Farris, Pam Stowe and Laura Thompson. 

Cocktail attire or that inspired by Fab Four era icons is encouraged, and a best-dressed prize will be awarded. Tickets are $125 at

If you want a chance to win two free tickets to the event, go to the center's Facebook page and post a Beatles-inspired haiku, then ask your Facebook friends to "Like" it. The haiku that has the most "Likes" by 3 p.m. on April 8 will be named the winner.
