The Yellowstone Art Museum’s 48th Annual Art Auction will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016. The event will be held at the Yellowstone Art Museum located at 401 North 27th Street, Billings, Montana. The exhibition is now on view and silent auction bidding and buy-it-now is available until the event on March 5th.
The Annual Art Auction is the YAM’s most significant fundraising event, generating proceeds in support of exhibitions and educational programming for the entire year. The theme this year is fire (a challenging choice since actual fire is not allowed in the museum). New this year will be flamenco jazz by Johnny Walker and flamenco dancing by Cecilia Scott. The exhibition culminates in our Annual Art Auction, which consists of a silent auction, a live auction, a "Quick Draw," and cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres, all within the beautiful background created by the museum’s spacious galleries. The Auction begins Saturday, March 5, 2016, at 5 p.m. and features a dinner and dessert buffet catered by Thomas Nelson Catering. The Live Auction bidding begins at 7:30 p.m. The auction will include a raffle drawing for exquisite jewelry donated by Montague’s Jewelers and an incredible handspun rug donated by Kismet Fine Rugs. Raffle tickets may be purchased separately at the museum, or online, and the ticket holder need not be present to win. Advance tickets to the Art Auction event are $95 per person and $105 at the door.

Additional support is provided by sponsors Intermountain Distributing Company; Corning Companies; Wipfli LLP; Party Solutions; Yellowstone Surgery Center; Sanctuary Spa & Salon; Stillwater Mining Company; Montague's Jewelers; Kismet Fine Rugs; Hardy Construction; and DiA Events.
