The Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s annual ARTrageous fundraising event is considered the fundraising event of the year, and this year’s festivity looks to be the best yet. With live and silent auctions throughout the night, this is your chance to take home some great prizes while helping the art community.

Silent auction items up for grabs include tickets to the sold-out Paul McCartney show on June 9 with an accompanying Casa Restaurants gift card, four Indianapolis Colts home game tickets that come with a cooler stocked with a variety of beer, a gold and diamond necklace, and getaways to Siesta Key, San Miguel, and Northern Michigan. Also available in the silent auction are TinCaps tickets, designer bags and sunglasses, Notre Dame football tickets complete with a fully funded three-hour tailgate party and, most importantly, art from Dale White, Salvador Dali, Terry Puller, Bob Cross, Robert Vegeler, Louis Bonsib, Max Cantrell, and more.

The live auction features an instant wine cellar with 100 bottles of wine, a wine cooler and wine racks, a behind-the-scenes tour of the historic Allen County Courthouse, private dinner at your home with Chef Aaron Butts, the executive chef at the Golden Spoon, and travel packages to Key West and Naples.

The funds raised during this event help the Fort Wayne Museum of Art continue to serve the community as the area’s largest resource for the visual arts. Tickets are available at
