We are excited and honored to invite you to the fifth annual Bandsaw Bash!

This event celebrates the Museum for Art in Wood with a festive evening party and silent auction. It is an opportunity to gather in support of the Museum’s unique mission while connecting with friends and supporters in the Museum’s vibrant community.

The 2024 Bandsaw Bash will take place in person at the Fleisher Art Memorial, Philadelphia, on Friday, April 19, 6:30–9:30pm. A special champagne reception and auction tour for sponsors will be held at 6:00pm, just before we kick off the main event.

If you joined us for the Bandsaw Box Auction in 2022, you recall the ingenious works made in support of the Museum, as well as the warm camaraderie of our guests. This year promises an event packed with inspiring, new bandsaw boxes, food, wine, beer, live music, and more. As in past years, proceeds from the auction are split between contributing artists and the Museum. Your sponsorship helps fund the exhibitions and events that the Museum for Art in Wood delivers.

The Museum’s staff and Board of Trustees look forward to seeing you on April 19th.

If you have any questions, please contact Katie Sorenson, Director of Outreach and Communications, at [email protected].
