Join Catalina Island Museum for the Fourth Annual Fundraising Extravaganza: The Art of a Rose on Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 4–7:30 p.m. in the museum’s open-air plazas. Enjoy a festive evening under the stars with a wide range of unique live and silent auction items, hosted bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, music and live entertainment. Guests will also be the first to view the museum’s newest exhibition Gary Miltimore: Water and Color, which includes the work of the late artist Gary Miltimore in the Artists’ Plaza Gallery.

Prepare to be amazed by the exciting lineup of talented artists and performers including juggler extraordinaire Michael Rayner, fire dancing by Firestorm Entertainment and songs by American operatic tenor Dennis McNeil with musical accompaniment by composer and pianist Michael Mortilla, and a special guest appearance by violinist Nicole Garcia. Celebrity Emcee and Auctioneer Matt Rogers returns for this year’s event to host the evening, as well as lead the live auction of one-of-a-kind items. All proceeds from the event will help the museum continue to provide world-class exhibitions and educational programs for Catalina Island and its visitors. During the event, the museum will be sharing and celebrating exciting changes and updates for the 68-year-old institution including the addition of a 1,000 square foot art gallery.

The Art of a Rose is named in honor of the museum’s long-time board member and supporter, Roy Rose, who recently donated over 350 paintings from his personal collection to the museum, as well as additional gifts for future museum use. A number of the donated paintings will be on display during the event and a select few will be available for bidding during the live auction.

Tickets to The Art of a Rose Annual Fundraising Extravaganza are currently on-sale at $225 a person. To purchase tickets and for more information about the event, visit
