This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Museum's fall fundraising event which aims to offer the perfect mix of art, hors d’oeuvres, collecting and socializing. Artists throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond have been invited to showcase. They will talk about and sell their works, and some will even create their artwork live at the event.
