The Krannert Art Museum Council invites members, friends, and art lovers to come together to celebrate the museum’s collection and to help it grow in new and exciting ways. This special event brings you behind the scenes to see how new works of art are selected for the museum. And exciting news for this year — Acquired Taste Celebration will be held at the new Siebel Center for Design, adjacent to Krannert Art Museum.

The evening includes musical entertainment, featuring musicians from Sinfonia da Camera, a delicious sit-down dinner catered by Michaels’ Catering, and fascinating art acquisitions—works that the curators and directors believe will be meaningful additions to the collection. Attendees will vote in order to put a favorite at the top of the standings. The winning work of art will be acquired with the evening’s proceeds.

There will also be a silent auction of original works of art by friends of KAM Council. Photographs of silent auction artwork will be available on the KAM facebook page later this Spring.

We will be following all of the University of Illinois guidelines for gatherings.
