The Duluth Art Institute’s Annual Masquerade Gala will be held on November 3, 2018 from 5 to 11pm at the Moorish Room in Greysolon. The Gala includes a plated, three-course dinner by Black Woods Catering, drawings for prizes, silent auction packages, Bauhaus bingo, a Fund-a-Need, original art for auction, and more. Seated at each table will be an artist, who has exhibited at the Duluth Art Institute in the last few years, and who will provide each of the guests at the table with a work of art to take home. Attendees are encouraged to wear a mask and to find inspiration from this year’s theme: the Bauhaus.

The Masquerade Gala is the Duluth Art Institute’s main fundraiser. Funding from the Gala supports the organization in bringing art to and inspiring art in everyone. We serve 68,000 artists and art lovers in the region and throughout the state with visual art exhibitions, art classes for all ages, and artist services such as professional development and networking. 

The Duluth Art Institute fosters all types of artistic expression, empowers diverse voices, and lives the value that art is for all. The Institute is driven by its mission to enrich daily life with innovative visual arts programming that upholds excellence and promotes inclusive community participation.

Guests of the Gala include Duluth’s local talent Edward Moody as Emcee and Jazz Guitarist Briand Morrison. Artists hosting tables include: Jonathon Thunder, Tia Salmela Keobounpheng, Wilson Johnson, Susanna Gant, Julie Zenner, Aaron Squadroni, Brian Barber, Naomi Christenson, Debbie Cooter, Shawna Gilmore, Matt Kania, Elizabeth Kuth, Paul LaJeunesse, Karen Nease, Nik Nerburn, Kristen Pless. Please know, supporting artists and their careers means The Duluth Art Institute splits the sale of art with the artist. The artists may decide to donate proceeds. 

Join art makers and art lovers in celebrating Duluth Art. Everyone takes home art, making the evening inspiring and memorable. Special thanks to our Artists Sponsor Krenzen and Collector Sponsor Republic Bank, as well as our in-kind sponsors Barefoot Florista, Duluth Event Lighting and ProPrint.
