Art & Ale…What a Success!

By: Scott Wachtel, Communications Intern


It was such a wonderful event and the museum felt alive with over 320 people enjoying themselves while also getting the chance to visit the museum. People took the opportunity to walk through the galleries and see the exhibitions and collection items on view.
We just wanted to say, THANK YOU. It was such a success. You sampled the many beers and foods from the local venders and told us how much you enjoyed the event. We hope you will clear a spot on your calendar for next year. We are already starting to make our plans.
The event raised over $10,000 for the museum, which will go towards continuing our education and community outreach programs.

Congratulations to Laura Snelson who won the giant basket of swag from the brewers. We also want to congratulate the brewers who won top beers of this year’s Art & Ale:

Our judges and people using the social media application, Untappd had some of the same tastes in sampling. Check out the Untappd page for the museum and see what tasted. Please feel free to go onto our Facebook page and tag yourself in some of the photos from Art & Ale and share them with your friends.

We hope to see our members soon at other events and those who are nonmembers become members and reap the benefits. Keep in mind our next big fundraising event is the 19th Annual Auction on Saturday, June 14, 2014.
