Many of the guests came dressed in the glam style of the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s to complement the Beaux Arts signature painting. Each year, a signature raffle piece and a signature painting are donated to Beaux Arts. The signature raffle piece was “Eat More Beef,”  a sculpture by Sandy Scott. The 2019 signature painting, “Time for Herself,” was painted exclusively for Beaux Arts by Joseph Lorusso, an instructor at SAS.
