Art in Concert
Friday, October 20, 2017
Join us on October 20th for Tank and the Bangas! (Preview the Band)
Tank and the Bangas is a New Orleans-based band that has gained popularity in the last several months after winning the NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Judges said the decision was made because the band was able to show a mastery of a unique sound while maintaining a chemistry that made them a pure joy to watch. The six person band features Montgomery native and BTW alumn Albert Allenback.
The MMFA will be bringing back the popular VIP tent sponsored by Pine Bar and Vintage Year for this year’s concert. Enjoy food and drinks and meet the band under a private tent from 5:30-7:00 P.M. prior to the concert. VIP tickets are only $50. General Admission tickets are $15. This is early bird pricing and will end on Oct. 19 when VIP tickets will go to $75 and General Admission will go to $20.
Gates open at 5:30 P.M. and the music starts at 7:00 P.M.

Our favorite recycled work auction was in March of 2017. As you clean out your closets and attics, refresh a room, or move, please remember we will take donations of art, both fine and decorative, for the auction. Your tax deductible donation will be auctioned off in a night of fun that benefits the Museum’s acquisition, exhibition, and education programs.

Art Auction 2016
On Saturday, March 5, the Live Auction consisted of a cocktail party followed by dinner at 7:30 P.M., with the live auction of 25 premium works presented during dinner.
The Art Auction has become the SMART Auction with MOBILE BIDDING!
In an effort to make the Art Auction 2016 works more accessible to the largest number of bidders, the Museum used mobile bidding for the first time, giving the opportunity to place bids through your desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet.
Although bidding is closed, you can see the 2016 Art Auction items by following this link to see the auction!
The Art Auction 2016 would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our Art Selection Committee. They traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico; Charleston, South Carolina; and New York City; as well as cities throughout the Southeast to provide a broad collection of works that appeal to a wide audience. This year’s items will include paintings, prints, glass, sculpture, and jewelry, as well as non-art items, such as travel opportunities and unique entertainment packages.
Thank you to the Art Selection committee: Mary Dunn, Chair, Lucy Jackson, Co-Chair, Jane Barganier, Ginny Cumbus, Camille Elebash-Hill, Bonner Engelhardt, Susan Geddie, Gage LeQuire, Phillip Rawlings, Winston Wilson Reese, Bruce Reid, and Laurie Weil.
