LUMA’s first ever Art Sale is this Wednesday, November 2nd and you don’t want to miss out on the variety of pieces you could go home with. Loyola University Museum of Art is a non-profit organization that’s mission is to spread education and represent the five major faiths. The Art Sale is a great opportunity for you to support this establishment and walk away with a great piece of art to put on that empty wall you’ve been trying to find that perfect thing for. The Art Sale is from 6-9:30pm and will have a silent auction and cocktails from 6-8:30pm, a Live auction hosted by Gayle M. Franzen at 7:30pm, and a Backroom Bazaar at 8:30pm. When purchasing the additional $50 ticket for the Backroom Bazaar you are guaranteed a look in the ‘backroom’ and are entitled to a work of art from there. This is a great opportunity to provide additional support for LUMA.
