Artini 2022

14th Annual Martini Event

Cocktail Competition and Fundraiser

Attendees, please keep an eye on your email on Tuesday, February 22, for all essential details regarding ticket pick up and when/where at-home attendees can acquire their cocktail kits.

The A2AC is excited to welcome you back downtown for Artini 2022!

This year we will have two options for you to choose from—celebrate in-person or from the comfort of your own home! We’re taking your favorite pieces from each and making this year one to remember.

We’ve paired six downtown restaurants with a mural from the A2AC Murals program and the A2DC to see what magic they can make, using the mural as their inspiration.




Whether you’re celebrating downtown or at home, it’s sure to be an evening to remember!

For those interested in attending the in-person Artini, we have reduced the number of tickets available, extended the time during which tickets can be used to allow ample space at each location, and will be offering ticket pick up throughout the week leading up to the event to avoid congestion at the A2AC. As always, if you have additional questions please contact Meaghan Clark, our Development and Communications Director, at mclark@annarborartcenter.org.

Can I pick up my friends Artini tickets, for either in person event or the at home option?

Your ticket includes SIX tickets to try SIX cocktails from SIX of your favorite downtown Ann Arbor bars and restaurants! You’ll also receive a tasting guide with map and information about each cocktail and the mural that inspired it.
