Arts and artists are center stage at the Missoula Art Museum's 47th Annual Benefit Art Auction.

This benefit begins at 5:00 p.m. this Saturday, February 2, at the University Center on the University of Montana campus. The annual live and silent auction fundraiser supports Missoula Art Museum's work in bringing cutting-edge art experiences to the Missoula community, with an amazing live auction experience. Even if you're not in the bidding battles, the excitement that is generated makes it worthwhile to attend.

The spectrum of art available promises to dazzle, with something for everyone, from the novice to the seasoned collector. It is truly a raucous celebration of Missoula's vibrant art community. Auction proceeds benefit not only Missoula Art Museum, but also artists who are an integral part of the high-quality exhibitions and educational programs all year long.

We hope you can be a part of it. For ticket pricing and more info, you can contact Tracy Cosgrove with MAM at 406-728-0447, tracy@missoulartmuseum.org, or visit the museum website.
