We’re painting the town

red and blue and green and pink and yellow

and you’re invited!

Come dressed in your brightest hues for this annual party where one ticket admits two people for food, drinks, and one amazing piece of art! #CollectorsChoice is MFA’s premier event and one of the hottest parties in town. Every ticket takes home one fantastic piece of artwork but what you get depends on when your number gets pulled.

Party starts at 6 PM at Volvo Cars Annapolis (333 Busch’s Frontage Road, Annapolis, MD 21409)

  • Don’t miss the first pull by our Master of Ceremonies, WTMD’s Alex Cortright!

  • When your number gets picked you get to choose from any piece that hasn’t already been selected.

  • Fabulous food from the area’s best restaurants – enjoy both tried-and-true and something new.

  • Drinks are on us – bubbles, beer, and beyond.

  • Raffles for premium wine, staycation packages, and jewelry.

  • Live music!

  • And more!

Attend Collector’s Choice from anywhere! Purchase an online attendee ticket and select new artwork while never having to leave home.

This hybrid version of Collector’s Choice gives anyone anywhere the ability to chose a new original piece of art without ever having to leave the house. Stay home, serve up some bubbles, and never change out of your pajamas.

Here’s how Collector’s Choice will look if you attend virtually:

  • Art will be on display online starting October 17. Make your list ahead of time of what work your like (we recommend 10-20 pieces).

  • MFA will send you a link ahead of the event with instructions on how to join.

  • When your number gets called, type out in the chat the piece you want, sit back, and relax!

  • Art will be shipped to collectors after the event.

We couldn’t make this event happen without all of our incredible donors! We particularly want to thank our headline sponsor, Volvo Cars Annapolis, whose support for this event is always invaluable. Our donating artists give us their best work and the only reason to be here – make sure you see all of their incredible work online. Plus, our raffle sponsors and participating restaurants make sure each year’s event is more delicious and more fun than the last!

Vote for your favorite piece as a part of the Collector’s Choice People’s Choice!

All work that was donated for Collector’s Choice will be a part of a People’s Choice online. The winner of which will receive a special prize from MFA.
