Wildling Museum of Art & Nature will celebrate 20 years of art and nature in the community with a live virtual fundraising event from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16.
Auctioneer Jim Farnum will emcee the evening event that will feature special tributes, art and friendly bidding wars on live auction items.
Items up for bid include one-of-a-kind art, jewelry, wine, lodging experiences and other.
The event will help raise museum funds, which then will be doubled up to $15,000 by board member Kate Godfrey, according to a spokesperson for the museum.
The project marks the Musem's first public art initiative.
There is no cost to attend the event.
