Yellowstone Art Museum’s 49th Annual Art Auction
MONTANA LIVING — Chill at the museum during the Yellowstone Art Museum’s 49th Annual Art Auction on Saturday, March 4, 2017. The event will be held at the Yellowstone Art Museum located at 401 North 27th Street, Billings, Montana. 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 icy with cold cocktails and cool artwork that will send chills down your spine...and all for a great cause!
Everyone is invited to an opening reception for the Art Auction 49 exhibition, which will be held on January 19, 2017. The opening event will be the first chance to view this year’s Art Auction artwork selections from 141 artists from across the nation, including over 100 Montanan artists. There will be live music, cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, and free admission for members. The exhibition will remain open for viewing and silent auction bidding until the event on March 4th.
The exhibition culminates in our 49th Annual Art Auction, which consists of a silent auction, a live auction, a "Quick Draw," cocktails, and gourmet refreshments, all within the cool environment of our beautiful galleries. The Auction begins Saturday, March 4, 2017, at 5 p.m. and features a heavy hors d’oeuvres and dessert buffet catered by Thomas Nelson Catering. The Live Auction bidding begins at 7:30 p.m. and includes a special bidding opportunity to directly support the YAM’s Education Department, providing art education for nearly 50 years.
