This year marks the 22nd annual freshART event at Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park, Covington. On Saturday, September 13, over 30 of the region's finest artists will be scattered throughout Devou Park creating art to be auctioned off live at the dinner-gala that evening.

A combination of silent auction items, art and surprise raffle opportunities help us to raise funding necessary to support the arts and the museum's commitment to provide educational programs that enable children to study and enjoy the natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage of our region.

WKRC-TV's John Lomax is the emcee.
