Spectrum, Hunter Museum’s annual art auction and gala, is just around the corner. The festivities will begin with a silent auction on Thursday, Nov. 12 that will feature over 50 works by artists from across the southeast.
Guests will have the opportunity to bid on works while enjoying cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres. Then the gala and live art auction will be held Saturday, Nov. 14.
The black-tie affair will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the live auction galleries, transition to a seated dinner catered by Lee Towery, and conclude with the live auction in the lobby.
A preview of the artwork that will be included in the silent and live auctions can be found at huntermuseum.org.
New this year, Hunter Museum will be using an electronic bidding system called BidPal to expedite check-in, check-out, and the bidding process for the silent auction and live auctions. Registered Spectrum guests will receive email and text message notifications from the museum in advance of the events with a link to download the BidPal application to their phone and brief instructions.
Spectrum guests will need to bring a charged smart phone to participate in the bidding. An electronic bidding kiosk will also be available for guests without smart phones.
