We Put the Art in Party

Artopia is New Times Broward-Palm Beach’s annual injection of all things cultural and sensational. On Wednesday, the bold assortment of over-the-top fashion, art, live music, and dancing hits Delray Beach’s Italian restaurant and lounge Il Bacio.

The $20 admission purchases you a night of tantalizing visual stimuli and plenty of edible delights provided by Il Bacio and Prime, a new Delray spot for steak, sushi, and seafood. Not to mention the signature cocktails flowing all night. Aside from all the goodies likely to make your rotund stomach a masterpiece in its own right, New Times Broward-Palm Beach will present $4,000 in grants at the second-annual Master Minds Awards ceremony held during the event. Chosen by a panel of area creative types, the finest local artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach will get some scrilla to keep their projects afloat.

Artopia is from 7 to 11 p.m. Wednesday at Il Bacio, 29 SE Second Ave., Delray Beach. It’s for those 21 and up. To buy tickets beforehand, visit browardpalmbeach.com and click on the Artopia banner that sweeps across our front page. They’ll be $25 at the door.
