Auction 2016: Black & Gold Ball
Saturday, March 19 @ 7-11 pm

The Museum of the Southwest's Auction is a major gala event occurirng once every three years and is the Museum’s most important fundraiser. Auction 2016 is not only an extraordinary party, but a celebration of the Museum's Golden Anniversary--50 years of service to Midland and the West Texas Communities.  As such, Auction 2016 was themed Black and Gold Ball. The elegant decoration of every space in the Turner Memorial Art Museum was inspired by an array of international works of art that featured gold in an expressive and dramatic way. The tablescapes and décor in each space allowed the highlights of the recent renovation to shine throughout the evening. This elegant evening took place the night before the Museum first opened its doors to the public in 1966. All proceeds from this triennial fundraiser benefit the Museum of the Southwest, its exhibition and programs for the three subsequent years. 

The next Auction will take place in 2019.
