Each “Fan” has selected their favorite artwork from the Permanent Collection of the Museum and is creating a work of art in response to it. Votes will be tallied and the winner announced at the SBMA ArtLights Gala on October 17, 2019. The fan who receives the most votes will win the coveted Guilded Brush Award.

Voting begins October 4th! See all the artwork for yourself in our Rotunda gallery October 4 – 17. Cast a vote for your favorite for $25.
