Cocktails & Collecting
November 5 (Saturday)
The Museum's fall fundraiser offers art lovers the perfect mix of collectible artwork, delectable hors d’oeuvres, and socializing. Up-and-coming and established artists from across the Lehigh Valley and beyond (see list below) will be on hand to showcase, talk about, and sell their works, even demonstrating their creative process live. This year’s event celebrates the renewed vibrancy in downtown Allentown, specifically in and around the Arts District, of which the Museum is an anchor. Monies raised through art sales and ticket sales help support the Museum and its mission to serve as a resource for artists, members, and the community.
The evening will feature an open bar and food on two floors, courtesy of Catering by Karen Hunter. County Seat Spirits will serve complimentary tastings. Music will be provided by the Lehigh University Jazz Combo under the direction of Dave Riekenberg.
