HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Inspiration is just around the corner at Arts Huntsville's Art Tour of Homes. This year's event, presented by Bank Independent, will be held Saturday, February 1. Once again, five local homeowners and art enthusiasts will open their homes to the public to inspire visitors to start or grow their own collection of art, with a sixth home featured at an exclusive Preview Party on Thursday, January 30th.

The Art Tour Preview Party, presented by Bridgeworth, LLC, is an exclusive fundraising event featuring a sixth home not on the public tour. The Preview Party will be hosted on Thursday, January 30th from 6:00pm-9:00pm at the Twickenham home of Bonnie and Steve Hettinger. This special social event will feature heavy hors d`oeuvres and drinks as attendees mingle with fellow art enthusiasts and explore the Hettinger`s eclectic collection of local and regional art.

Tickets for the exclusive event are $100, in advance only, and include a ticket to the public art tour on Saturday, February 1st. Tickets must be purchased by Friday, January 24th. This event serves as a fundraiser to support Arts Huntsville`s ongoing arts and cultural programs throughout the year, including year-round promotions of area arts events, and Arts Huntsville`s free community events like the Spring into Summer Activities Fair and Monte Sano Art Festival.
