Ruby Jubilee Auction Exhibition

MAM's Ruby Jubilee: Celebrating Four Decades of Contemporary Art is around the corner. The exhibition will open January 6 with the Ruby Jubilee Auction occurring at the UC Ballroom Saturday, February 7.

MAM’s Ruby Jubilee Art Auction Exhibition features 80 dynamic artists in the silent and live auctions from the Missoula area and beyond. The art works will be divided equally between the live and silent auctions. The silent auction incorporates a wide variety of work and diversity in price range to increase bidding opportunities for all budgets. The live auction is smaller than in past years to create more competition and generate exciting bidding. Art works vary in media, subject matter, and style and represent a unique tableau of contemporary art in the region. A Wine Wall is new to the event this year and two unique items will be offered in the live auction.

We are happy to be returning to the University Center Ballroom at UM. The ballroom allows us to comfortably accommodate 450 of our closest, contemporary art-loving friends. This year’s theme, Ruby Jubilee, celebrates four decades of contemporary art at MAM.

The Ruby Jubilee Art Auction Exhibition opens on January 6 and will remain on display until February 4, 2015. Meet the exhibiting artist at an artist’s reception on Thursday, January 15 from 5-8 PM. MAM would like to thank our Presenting Sponsor US Bank and our Media Sponsors the Missoulian and Montana Radio Company.

MAM we wouldn't be able to do all we do without the work and inspiration presented by artists. We are also thankful for their generous auction artwork donations which vary from 50% to 100%.
