Maine Discovery Museum’s 2014 Gala Art Auction – “A Case for Art” will be held on Saturday, November 15. The twelfth annual gala dinner-auction features 70 fabulous one-of-a-kind artworks in various media. This year’s central piece is a glass-door cabinet, which can be free-standing or wall-mounted. Sixty-five of these cabinets have been uniquely decorated by Maine artists, who donated their time and talent to the works and to MDM. These pieces are joined by a variety of jewelry made by local jewelers, a special raffle and several framed paintings. The event starts at 5 p.m. with a preview/cash bar/silent auction, followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and a live auction at 8 p.m. Reservation and absentee bidding information available by phone or online. Visit our website to see the wonderful artworks up for auction! All the money raised from this event will support the museum’s mission to provide a fun, hands-on place where art, science and nature come alive for Maine children and their families. Through this most important event in the museum’s fundraising year, admission and programs are kept affordable and accessible to children and families of all abilities and backgrounds. Time: 5 – 9:30 p.m. Cost: $50.00/person Location: Hilton Garden Inn, 250 Haskell Road, Bangor Contact person: Niles Parker, Executive Director – firstname.lastname@example.org.
