    Celebrate Art and Community at Demuth Foundation’s 25th Art Auction Fundraiser

    The Demuth Foundation is thrilled to announce its 25th Art Auction Fundraiser, set to take place on Thursday, May 16 in The Imperial’s Blue Ballroom and Terrace at the Holiday Inn Lancaster. The art auction is a community effort to support the Demuth Museum and Lancaster Museum of Art, as well as the Foundation’s mission to promote the appreciation and awareness of the visual arts in Lancaster.


    Featuring both live and silent auctions, the art auction gives attendees the opportunity to bid on 75 original artworks. These pieces not only highlight the talent of local and regional artists but also include works by nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, adding a global flair to this year’s lineup.


    The auction will feature Emcee David Groff and auction services by Boltz Auctions. The evening will include a delightful blend of art, community, and celebration—marking a quarter-century of successful art auctions. Throughout the fundraiser, the Demuth Foundation will highlight memorable moments from their journey over the past three decades, and recognize our wonderful art community.
