Calling All Artists

Get Ready, Get Set . . . Create!



For the 30th year, Behringer-Crawford Museum will celebrate the artistic talents of the region with its annual freshART gala and art auction on Sunday, September 11. We plan to be LIVE and IN-PERSON so we hope you can can join us!

Spend the weekend in Devou Park creating original works to be sold "fresh" at the live auction at the museum that evening. OR, share your previously created paintings, sculpture, jewelry, woodcrafts, etc. at the silentART auction, which begins with mobile bidding at the final concert of the 2022 Music@BCM series on August 11 and ends at the September 11 gala.

freshART works will be judged by a panel of experts, with $1000 in cash prizes awarded to the top three entries by the William & Patricia Applegarth Fund.

We hope to see you soon!
