On Saturday evening, the Museum transforms—the summer night is filled with the scent of fresh flowers and the sounds of sparkling conversation and beautiful music wafting through the galleries. Guests sample a culinary feast of delectable hors d’oeuvres, fine wines, sparkling champagne, and a full bar, while bidding on more than 50 artworks in a Silent Auction. Guests then move into the Feferman Gallery for a beautiful three-course dinner and wine pairings, prepared by Simply Bainbridge, concluding with a Raise-the-Paddle in support of BIMA and the amazing artists who grace its halls and galleries.

Saturday Night guests receive complimentary tickets to the Friday event as well!

Come with the Crowd at 5:30 pm


Be An Angel! Join renowned artist Barbara Earl Thomas and Museum founder Cynthia Sears on Saturday evening for a short pre-gala reception. Art Angels are pre-registered, get in-house reserved parking, enter early, enjoy a spread of fresh oysters, artisan cheese, charcuterie, sparkling champagne, and are first to see the artwork collection. Plan your bidding strategy, beat the crowd and put bids on artwork 45-minutes before the crowd!
