The Great Art Affair
Friends of the Museum is a volunteer organization comprised primarily, but not entirely, of Coral Springs residents. Volunteers support the Coral Springs Museum of Art through fundraising and community awareness and through providing advocacy for the Museum.
October Wine-Tasting Fundraiser
The Great Art Affair is held annually in April and is the museum's largest fundraiser of the year. It relies on the Friends to help plan the event, go out into the Community to raise sponsorship dollars and help bring in attendees. Each year there is a silent auction of art plates and vessels, a live auction of original artwork, and wonderful tastings of various foods and wines from area caterers and restaurants.
The Fresh Market and The Museum have hosted an October wine-tasting fundraiser for the past eight years. The Fresh Market provides a selection of wines from around the world, along with light hors d'oeuvres. Friends of the Museum are expected to help get the word out to the Community, promote ticket sales, and attend in support of the Museum.
