New for the Wall: A Special Evening to Acquire Works for the Museum Collection

Fri, 12 Apr, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Here’s your chance to play a role in selecting works of art for the permanent collection. Each of our curators will choose a work of art they hope will find a place in the Museum—whether an ancient work of Chinese art or the latest from a contemporary artist. After viewing the art and learning about why the object adds to the collection, event sponsors and attendees will vote for the work or works that will join the collection.

This sophisticated evening will include cocktails, dinner, lively presentations about art, and the opportunity to play curator for a night by giving your voice to what artwork should become part of the collection.

6 p.m. — Cocktail hour and art viewing
7 p.m. — Seated dinner
8:30 p.m. — Voting (winners will be announced at the end of each round)

MAJOR SPONSORS: Bonhams, Lisa Domenico Brooke, Christie’s, Janet and Richard Geary, Jeanette Heinz, Laura S. Meier, Vasek Polak and Travers Hill Polak, Arlene Schnitzer, Nani S. Warren, Helen Jo and Bill Whitsell, Dr. Alton and Celia Wiebe. SPONSORS: Joan and Ken Austin, Sharon and Keith Barnes, Frank Foti and Brenda Smola, Mark and Christi Goodman, Selby and Douglas Key, James and Susan Winkler.
