Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) will hold its annual ArtBash gala on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at 5:30 p.m. with a “Starry Night” theme.

Blue Chip Casino Hotel Spa in Michigan City, Ind. will be especially dazzling that night, as it is suggested to wear clothing that sparkles like the stars in the sky, and the décor will reflect the stellar Vincent van Gogh-related theme.

Festivities will include dancing, a silent auction and an elegant buffet dinner with an open bar. NBC 5 Chicago news reporter and Michigan City native, Mary Ann Bergerson Ahern will return as emcee.

ArtBash is LCA’s premier fundraiser and plays a critical role in the organization’s efforts to ensure everyone in the community has access to high-quality cultural experiences. The gala helps support LCA’s mission of integrating art, education and community to provide access to compelling exhibitions and programs that explore contemporary ideas.

“I am so excited to have the gala back in person! I hope we have more guests than ever to have fun and be inspired. Lubeznik Center's programs and partnerships continue to grow, and I can't wait to tell the community what our future holds with their help. Being inclusive, accessible and welcoming is core to our ambition to lift the human spirit and enhance the quality of life in our region through the arts for all people. This vision is gaining momentum now,” says Janet Bloch, LCA’s executive director.

Tickets, $150 or $1500 per table, can be purchased online at or over the phone at 219-874-4900. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Contact Janet Bloch, executive director, at 219-874-4900 or for details.
