Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - BY KAREN HILL CORRESPONDENT Con­tact Karen Na­zor Hill at khill@times­freep­ress.com.

Spec­trum, Hunter Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art’s pre­miere fundraiser, has sold out, ac­cord­ing to Cara McGowan, Hunter Mu­seum di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

The fundraiser in­cludes a cock­tail party and silent auc­tion tonight, Nov. 9, and a black-tie din­ner with live auc­tion on Satur­day, Nov. 11.

“Pro­ceeds help the mu­seum carry out its mis­sion con­nect­ing peo­ple of ev­ery back­ground through­out our commu- nity to art and ideas,” McGowan says. “Last year’s Spec­trum helped sup­port the mu­seum’s spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tions, in­clud­ing ‘Our Amer­ica: The Latino Pres­ence in Amer­i­can Art’ and ‘Thrill Af­ter Thrill: Thirty Years of Wayne White,’ as well as nu­mer- ous ed­u­ca­tional and out­reach pro­grams.”

Spon­sored by First Ten­nessee Foun­da­tion, Spec­trum also helps fund the mu­seum’s so­cial and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams, and fi­nances the up­keep and growth of the mu­seum’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tion.
