Pieces of an old poplar tree that came down on campus went to Gainsboro artist Jimmy Greenwood. He crafted the pieces into a turned vase that will be available at the auction on Sunday, Oct. 21, at Spankies Restaurant in Cookeville.
Proceeds from Bacchanal go to support student scholarships and art programs at TTU and its Appalachian Center for Craft. Tickets are $45 per person in advance and $55 at the door, if any are still available.
The event is from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The live auction begins at 2:30 p.m.
