Spectrum: Gala & Live Auction

  • Hunter Museum of American Art 10 Bluff View Avenue Chattanooga, TN, 37403 United States (map)

Silent and Live works may be arranged for pick-up at the Hunter (M-F, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.). Please call 423.267.0968 to schedule or shipping may be arranged for a fee.

Chattanooga’s premier arts gala is on the horizon, and Gala Chairs Ronna-Renee and Jeff Jackson, Art Selection Chairs Allison and Thomas Lee, and their respective committees have been busy putting final touches on this much-anticipated event supporting the Hunter.

Saturday night’s seated dinner and live auction will be held on the exquisite Hunter Museum River Terrace. Emceed by Jim and Dan Kennedy, this year’s auction will feature a variety of artworks selected at galleries from New York to New Orleans. We anticipate lively bidding! Guests will also have the opportunity to help grow the museum’s permanent collection through the “museum purchase appeal,” when Spectrum guests pledge funds to purchase a work of art chosen by the curators and acquisitions committee. Following the auction, guests will cap the evening enjoying live music and dessert.
