Yo Art, a local organization that brings technology-driven arts to Title I schools, gets a new executive director this April. Greg Colleton, who served as Redux Contemporary Art Center's director of operations for the past six years, and as Yo Art's director of development since October, will take the reins from its current director, Elizabeth Bowers.

The organization, which has been around for 12 years, hosts its inaugural benefit party on March 26. As Colleton says, the organization is still growing, and this benefit will help extend its reach.

Help Yo Art grow — and have a good time, of course — on Thurs. March 26, 7-10 p.m. at Harborside East (an event venue in Mt. Pleasant). Tickets are just $35 ($50/pair) and can be purchased online.

The benefit auction features specialty cocktails crafted by the Cocktail Bandits, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and live entertainment from the Yum Yum Boys Jazz Band. Attendees can bid on local goods, services, and art work during both a live and silent auction.
