The Annual Art Auction & Community Picnic is Anderson Ranch’s largest community fundraiser of the year and a festive highlight of the summer season! Held at the historic ranch, all are invited to enjoy the campus. Over 200 works of art are available in live and silent auctions. Donated by artists, collectors and galleries, much of the work was made at the Ranch or produced specifically for this event. The auctions are free and open to the public. Live music, art, children’s activities and a picnic lunch ($15) make this an event not to miss! All proceeds support Ranch programs.
