BCM has hosted one of the region’s top art events, spotlighting local artists, raising funds for its youth education programs and giving art lovers the chance to buy one-of-a-kind original works. The 27th annual freshART auction and party will take place in the museum’s amphitheater at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 14, with a live auction of “fresh” art created by dozens of artists working that weekend in Devou Park. John Lomax, morning news anchor for Local 12, will serve as emcee for the event. Tickets to freshART are $80. To reserve or for more information, call 859-491-4003 or email info@bcmuseum.
