BEG BORROW OR STEAL is game in which every guest walks away with a unique work of art. These works will be exhibited during the event, and guests will be assigned a piece at random when they arrive at Pioneer Works.

But there is a catch; guests have the ability to “beg, borrow, or steal” in order to safeguard or swap their piece…

  • Guests can buy “steal cards.” Steal cards allow guests to swap work with someone else.
  • Guests can buy “defend cards.” Defend cards protect guests’ work from thieves.
  • If Guest A has more steal cards than Guest B has defend cards, Guest A can demand to swap works.

    An upper level ticket grants a table of ten people entrance to the event with seven  steal AND three defend cards so you can claim the piece of your choosing and protect it! Otherwise, steal cards ($25) and defend cards ($50) will be available for purchase during the game.

    Tickets available below. Can’t wait to see you there!


    Recess is a 501(c)(3) organization and qualifies as tax exempt.  $270 of individual tickets and $2700 of table tickets is tax-deductible.
