Carnaval! Spring Gala on May 2

Get ready to shimmy and shine on May 2, when Plains Art Museum hosts “Carnaval,” the 19th annual Spring Gala. Your hosts for “Carnaval” are Bill Marcil, Jr. and Cris Linnares, and Kathryn Helgaas and Doug Burgum, who will make this year’s Gala the greatest party in town! Enjoy the heat and the Brazilian beat from 7 p.m. to midnight, with live samba music, great food and drink, the silent art auction, and dazzling displays of sheer spectacle, directed by Ryan Domres. Thank you to Border States for once again taking the lead as presenting sponsor for the Gala.

Tickets are $100 for members and $125 for non-members, and all proceeds benefit Museum education programs. Order tickets online at or call 701-551-6100.
