This year’s auction includes unique experiences such as tickets to Elton John’s farewell concert and a private in-home concert by the Bechtler Ensemble, vacations to exclusive destinations including Vail, Aspen, Palmetto Bluff, Charleston and Asheville, sporting events such as tickets to a Hornets game and golf at Quail Hollow Club, and much more!

 All proceeds benefit the museum's operating costs, including exhibitionspublic programs and community outreach initiatives that encourage an appreciation of the arts, culture, education and inclusiveness.

Your attendance at Pulp Art: The 2019 Gala makes the Bechtler More than a Museum, and supports our programs such as Jail Arts InitiativeLow to No VisionMuseum MemoriesInReach and Artists in Schools. We believe there should be no barriers to entry for audiences that have traditionally been underserved by the visual arts community.
