It's so close you can almost taste it...

A Taste of Art + Wine is just around the corner! Thursday, September 10 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., come sample the craft beers that made Asheville "Beer City U.S.A," enjoy fine wines, sample delicious local food and mingle with great company.

The leader in arts programming and education for Western North Carolina, the Museum survives through community support. All proceeds from A Taste of Art + Wine will go toward films, artists' talks, musical concerts and other outstanding public programs the Museum regularly presents. The evening will also include a silent auction, in which a limited number of unique, high-end items will be up for bid. With so much offered, a "taste" may not be enough!

Ticket prices are $30 per person/$55 per couple for Museum Members; $35 per person/$65 per couple for non-Members. All tickets sold at the door are $40 per person. Tickets for A Taste of Art + Wine sell quickly so reserve your tickets early by calling 828.253.3227. What a delicious idea!

Thank you, Summer Interns!

This summer the Asheville Art Museum had a fantastic group of Summer Interns! They helped out in departments such as Development, Curatorial, Communications, Visitor Services and even with Non-Profit Law. This year the interns had a chance to help the Museum celebrate its 60th Anniversary at the Celebrate 60! Party at The Orange Peel. They helped us throw a fabulous party and everyone had a great time. The Museum would like to thank the interns for all of their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication. Thank you!
