ART Party 2020 – POSTPONED
Due to recent developments around the COVID-19 virus, we have determined that it is necessary to postpone ART Party 2020, originally scheduled for March 28 at the Asheville Art Museum. This decision was not made lightly, and we feel it is the best option for the health and safety of Museum guests, staff, and participating artists and vendors. A new date will be announced in the future.
ART Party 2020 is a new event for the Museum, but promised to be one of our biggest and most exciting fundraisers of the year. ART Party 2020 and other special events provide essential support for world-class exhibitions and expansive programming for our Members and visitors to the Western North Carolina region. All current tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date and we will share more information in the coming weeks as we review updates from the CDC and other health organizations. Once a new date is announced, we will be able to discuss ticket exchange coordination with ART Party guests. Ticket holders can email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The Museum remains open to Members and visitors, serving as a place for inspiration, calm, and respite in challenging times. All Museum patrons are encouraged to check the Museum’s website, social media, and blog for the latest information on events, programs, and open hours. We look forward to celebrating ART Party with you when it is safe to do so.

Annual Benefit Events
As a nonprofit organization, the Museum relies on the generous support of our community members. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do—offer exciting exhibitions and engaging programs throughout the year.
The Museum hosts a number of popular benefit events each year including an annual gala, our popular Urban Loft & Art Tour, and our newest fundraiser, Art Party.
GALA & LIVE AUCTION
The Museum’s gala is our biggest event of the year. Featuring a cocktail reception, sit-down dinner, and live auction, this event brings together some of the Museum’s most dedicated supporters and celebrates all the Museum has to offer—from world-class exhibitions to engaging programs for children, teens, and adults.
URBAN LOFT & ART TOUR
This highly anticipated event provides our Members and supporters the opportunity to visit some of Asheville’s most stunning lofts and to view private art collections. Volunteer tour guides lead guests on a walking tour of Asheville, discussing places of historical significance and stopping in private residences along the way. The tour ends with a reception where guests have the chance to mingle with some of the loft owners while enjoying a drink and hors d’oeuvres.
This dynamic new "fun"-raising, fundraiser event features live music, dancing, art installations, and performance art. Guests will also enjoy light food and drink, a silent auction, and raffle.
