    One of Austin’s favorite annual events, Five x Seven raises funds for the exhibitions program at The Contemporary Austin while drawing attention to the vibrant community of artists living in and hailing from the state of Texas. More than 300 artists have donated original works of art, each measuring five by seven inches, which will be hung anonymously at the event. During the Cocktail Hour and Art Preview, guests have the chance to peruse the artwork on view and identify their favorites, all while enjoying wine, cocktails by Tito’s Vodka, selections by Independence Brewing Company, and delicious bites from TRACE and The Preserve Kitchen + Bar. Guests will also enjoy a live set by DJ Adrian Quesada. The artwork will go on sale at 8 pm when the signal sounds.  To claim an artwork guests must be the first to pull the tag placed under the work. Once the tag is claimed the artwork is available for $150 or $100 for museum members.

    The After-Party starts at 8:30 PM and includes live music, and bites from El Naranjo, Ranch 616, Frank, and Hey Cupcake. After-Party guests may purchase any works of art remaining after the initial preview sale.

    “The lively atmosphere and friendly competition of Five x Seven makes this one of my favorite benefits of the year,” said Elizabeth Stanley, 2015 Five x Seven Committee Chair. “The added bonus of raising much needed funds to help support The Contemporary’s mission of bringing world-renowned artists to Austin makes the fun that much more meaningful.”
