Live Music
This year, we are happy to feature Bohemian Jean as our live entertainment. Bohemian Jean is a duo made up of Waynesville residents, singer-songwriter Matthew Welborn and his vocalist wife Jessi Stone. Stone chooses covers that suit her soulful alto voice, including hits from Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Patsy Cline, and Carly Simon. Welborn complements his wife’s voice with rich harmonies, while also adding his own fun covers and original music to the performance. Since meeting and falling in love in high school, the duo’s natural chemistry has shone through when they perform the music they love.


Thank you to our lead sponsor, French Broad Chocolate Factory & Café, for its generous support of the Museum and this event.

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.

TOAST ASHEVILLE

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!

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.
