It is a big year for the Indianapolis Museum of Art. 125 years. As part of this celebration they will be hosting the 125th Anniversary Gala and Auction this Saturday. While the Gala is a rather expensive fund raising event (at $2000 per ticket), it should make for an excellent night of entertainment. For those who can not attend the Gala, the auction is still open to the public via absentee bidding, or you can sign up to be a phone bidder the night of the benefit. With art works by artists like, Claes Oldenburg, Tim Hawkinson, Amy Cutler, Ingrid Calame, Tara Donovan, Type A, Tony Feher, Kay Rosen and more. Follow this link, to see a some of the artists' work (some of whom made pieces especially for this benefit) along with further details. These pieces have been donated by the artists, all of whom will be in attendance at the Gala.

This is your chance to purchase works by some of the exciting artists that have been working with the IMA over the past couple years and also help to meet the IMA's goal of raising a cool $1 million dollars during the Gala.

Absentee bids or phone bidding registration can be arranged through Jane Shull, by calling (317) 923-1331 x212 or emailing

Tonight's the big night! And from the inside, everyone is abuzz with last minute prep.

You can read the history of the IMA in a new book, Every Way Possible, that will be in the IMA Store in December. Author Skip Berry documents the process of writing a book on the IMA Blog.

Thanks for celebrating with us On the Cusp
