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)
