About The Art Heist Events

The EASL hosts its Art Heist events every two years. During this event, our board members and volunteers work as a team to bring together local business sponsors, contributing artists, and patrons from the North Texas community. These groups come together to create a memorable fundraising experience! We look for the following types of assistance to make an Art Heist event happen:
