A MYSTERIOUS, N.A. PAINT & SIP!

ART HEIST is an evening of exciting art history, immersive story telling, a fun art project, and a mysterious puzzle that unfolds around you!

You have been invited to
an
ART HEIST!

As a clandestine group of master art thieves, you gather in the mysterious shadows of a hidden “art speakeasy” named
The Art Parlour.
Your curious host appears from the haze and begins guiding yo
u through a celebration of some of your most precious art heist conquests that your group has liberated from museums and palaces of Tsars.
 

Suddenly, your festivities are interrupted by a sharp crackle as the video screen snaps to life.
A dark, pixelated figure offers A CHALLENGE:
Prove your worthiness as a master thief by navigating through a series of riddles and clever puzzles and recovering the long-lost Imperial Star Gem which has been concealed behind hidden doorways operated by secret switches, and guarded by laser grids and interactive contraptions meant to thwart your advancement.

Be careful, master thief!
For while breaking through these clever conundrums will be met with a handsome reward, failure will result in certain doom!

ART HEIST is an evening of art-themed entertainment with many parts:
Fun performances and art-history lessons based on some of history's most interesting art heists!
An enjoyable, guided
art lesson resulting in a piece of your own artwork to take home!
Tasty complimentary N.A.
libations to sip!
And an exciting interactive
mystery to solve as a group with riddles to solve, puzzles to crack, strange devices to interact with, hidden doors to open and mysterious rooms to explore!

Common questions:

What can I expect at ART HEIST?
The door opens at 7:00pm and the show begins promptly at 7:30pm.
Your night will begin as a quiet, underground, and intriguing celebration of art thievery but will build into a perplexing mystery to solve as you are guided through a fun art project!

Is this a “paint and sip?” Is this a “show?”

You will be creating a guided art project and there will be complimentary n.a. “mocktails.”
But Trove's art experiences lean a bit more towards the theatrical, with performance pieces that tell the tales of the art which inspires our project. Think “an exciting TED Talk with theatrical lighting*, surround sound, and effects given by your favorite grade school teacher who is also a wonderful artist who can't wait to guide you through a fun project.”


I don't ever make art. OR I am a very experienced artist...
Will I have fun?

Absolutely. Our art experiences are designed to be gentle and inviting baby steps into and through an art project for those a bit timid, with plenty of space to roam and stretch some artistic legs for those more experienced.

What is the “MYSTERY” portion of the show? Will I have to act like a character or participate?
A mystery (Or "ART HEIST") will be presented to solve... But your level of involvement in accomplishing these tasks is entirely up to you.
Throughout the evening there will be hints and clues readily available and offered to the group during presentations, while other pieces of the puzzle might have to be discovered with a bit of wandering and sleuthing.
There are many ways to participate, from quietly paying attention to clues during the show, to partaking in little “quests” (that might involve glow-in-the-dark messages and ultraviolet lights, coded locks to solve, and hidden doors to open) during the “art breaks.”
