Pope County Museum seeks art donations

The Pope County Museum is seeking donations of gently used art for a silent auction fundraiser on May 12.

Have you changed your décor and stored things away for too long? Do you have paintings under your bed and framed photographs in the back of your closet? Here's a chance to find a new home for your fine art and benefit the museum at the same time.

Donated artwork (paintings, photographs, prints, sculptures) will be up for bids on a silent auction and all proceeds will benefit the Pope County Historical Museum.

The silent auction and open house will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bidding starts on Tuesday, May 8, at noon with free admission all week.

Bring donations to the museum at 809 South Lakeshore Drive in Glenwood during regular hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday or by appointment. Call 320-634-3293 or e-mail for information.
