Bazaar d’Art coming in March, 2017
Our favorite recycled work auction will be 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.
Have something to donate? Please call Jill Barry at 334.240.4344.

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
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.
