Patrons’ Show Fundraiser: Counting Down to Sunday

There’s a lot to explore in the Patrons’ Show Fundraiser — 650 works of art and counting — and while the pieces are as varied as the artists who made them, we did find a few patterns emerging on the walls. Here’s our scavenger hunt countdown, starting with:

What other patterns did you notice this year? Let us know in the comments!

The 2017 Patrons’ Show Fundraiser is on view through 4:00 pm on Sunday, February 19, when the drawing will begin.

Did you know you don’t need a full Patrons’ Show ticket to join in the fun?

With a First Choice Raffle ticket, you have a chance to win your first choice even without attending. When you buy a ticket (or several), you write down your first choice. If your raffle ticket is drawn, that piece is set aside for you to pick up later! You do not need a Patrons’ Show ticket to buy a First Choice Raffle ticket.

Tickets are $15 for one and $25 for two, and they’ll be on sale in the gallery starting February 11 until 2:30 pm February 19.
