This is an online event.
Bidding begins July 10 through July 24, 2020
Plains Art Museum and Presenting Sponsor Bell Insurance will hold a Virtual Art Auction from July 10-24, 2020. The public is invited, at no charge to register and bid on over 90 artworks. Other items available for purchase are tickets to the Museum’s Culinary and Wine adventure or try your luck on a Tombola box. The first 400 registrants will receive a coupon for a half-priced bottle of Spanish sparkling wine at Happy Harrys Bottle Shops in Fargo.
Instead of gathering with 600 or 700 people at the Gala, Plains Art Museum would like to encourage people to host small, outdoor, or virtual parties with family and friends on Friday, July 24th. Party organizers are also invited to post pictures of their gatherings and tag the Museum’s social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram). The 2020 gala theme was Surrealism, so the more creative costumes and decorations, the better. On this day, a community sharing their love for the arts and for one another will be reflected for the world to see.
Virtual Art Auction items are on display in Plains Art Museum’s First Floor Gallery for those who would like to see artworks in person Monday – Saturday. Gallery visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing as the Museum keeps the community’s safety in mind.
