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 TOAST Asheville, an annual gala, and our popular Urban Loft + Art Tour.


This festive annual event features beer and wine tastings, small bites from local restaurants, a silent auction, and live entertainment. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with local businesses while pairing arts and culture with good food and drink!


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.


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.
