Off the Wall Fundraiser

Masur Museum threw open the doors to a remarkable display of visual arts one Friday the 13th in March. And, for the sixth time in its history, the museum allowed visitors to take the art right off the wall—for a price. It was all part of the annual Off the Wall fundraiser, an annual effort spearheaded by the Twin City Art Foundation to raise money to support the arts.

By all accounts, this year’s event was a resounding success. Dozens of pieces by some of the area’s most renowned artists were auctioned off in a silent auction. Also, patrons took part in the Bon Voyage Raffle, which promised one lucky winner a gorgeous vacation package. Another patron took home a framed Georges Rodrigue print.

Live music throughout the evening came courtesy of Monty Russell and General Patterson. While patrons sipped complimentary cocktails, they also enjoyed the fine cuisine of Chef Pat Nolan and her team.
