The Collectors’ Event provides seasoned and novice art collectors alike with a unique opportunity to acquire works of art while supporting the Art Museum. This high-energy auction/raffle for 100 pieces of artwork from local and regional artists is available to the first 100 tickets buyers. Each ticket holder will receive an original work of art created and donated by our community of artists valued at the price of the ticket — and many times, much higher. A BIG THANK YOU to all the artists who have graciously donated their work for the benefit of the Art Museum.
To the benefit of both donating artists and ticket-holding art collectors, this fun-filled fundraiser doubles as a Museum exhibition with a duration of one month on our gallery walls. The event itself, which takes place toward the end of the exhibition’s timeline, is a fast-paced, online auction/raffle that allows participation from collectors all over the world. We encourage collectors to have “watch” parties with their family and friends to add to the excitement.
