Don't miss this special chance to participate in one of the Weatherspoon's most exciting events of the year!

Imagine being able to cast your vote for one of three works of art to be purchased for the museum's renowned permanent collection. Our curators pre-select the choices, but you have the final say! Prior Benefactors Choice Purchases have included works by Willie Cole, Joseph Cornell, Amy Sillman, Jasper Johns, Tara Donovan and Nancy Rubins.

This special evening is open to Weatherspoon Patrons, Benefactors, and Friends for voting. Members of the Contemporary Art Collectors Group and WAM members at the Contributors level are invited to attend, but are ineligible to vote.

Join or renew your membership today and join us on Monday, April 30! 

5:30 pm • Refreshments and viewing

6 pm • Curatorial presentations and voting
