SAVE THE DATE: January 26 through 30, 2021

Join us in January to celebrate art and culture, and to support Gadsden Arts work in the community. This the pandemic version of the museum’s highly acclaimed Evening with the Arts fundraiser. Instead of dining and dancing at the Sawano Club, we’ll be practicing social distancing (two alligator lengths apart) as we bid goodbye to 2020 and enter 2021, the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum’s 27th year of improving the quality of life through art.

Online Benefit Art Auction

featuring the best of our Artist-Members’ work!
Work will be offered at 50-50 commission to benefit our artists and the museum alike. Artists will also compete for People’s Choice Cash Awards to be announced January 29!

Live Streamed and/or In Person Mini-Events!

Top level sponsors and pass holders will have the first opportunity to attend limited-capacity events in person, or if streamed, to ask questions of presenters. All pass holders are invited to vote for the People’s Choice Awards.
