The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature is holding its 13th annual Spring Barbecue Fundraiser Sunday, May 1, 2016, at the beautiful Flag is Up Farms in Solvang.

Celebrating its 50th year, this venue has been the home to some of the world’s most successful performance horses and highest earning racehorses.

Enjoy delicious Valley wines, exciting raffle prizes and silent auction items, including original artwork, a half-day sailing trip, a Sedgwick overnight experience and much more.

Feast on a delicious barbecue dinner provided by Robert Santoro’s Santa Ynez barbecue while enjoying the toe-tapping music of Cadillac Angels. 

The Spring Barbecue is the perfect event to enjoy an afternoon with friends new and old and support a local nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to awaken a passion for nature and wilderness conservation.

Tickets begin at $125 a person.

In addition to the main event, there will be an exclusive VIP reception at the home of Pat Roberts, an acclaimed artist and renowned horsewoman.

VIPs will get an intimate look at her sculpture, sample a selection of premium wines and chat with like-minded individuals. VIP tickets are $250 a person and include entry to main event. 

Proceeds from ticket sales will support the Wildling’s mission to inspire Central Coast community members and visitors to enjoy, value and conserve wildlife and natural areas through art.  

A limited number of tickets available and can be purchased by calling 805.686.8315, visiting the Museum (1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang), or visiting www.wildlingmuseum.org


Katie Pearson is the assistant director of the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
