Made to Order

The Trout Museum of Art, with co-hosts Bergstrom Automotive and Community First Credit Union, invite you to celebrate Made to Order, our commissioned artwork exhibition on view August 28-November 8. Our community commissioned over 50 works of art and raised over $60,000 to support artists and TMA!

In addition to viewing this exhibition, our Made to Order artists are offering artwork for auction. During our 10-day fundraiser August 27-September 5, you can bid on artworks on view in our 3rd floor Shattuck Gallery or online at troutmuseum.org. You can also bid on museum experiences such as art classes, parties, and more. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to support art in our community. Below are the three options for celebrating and viewing the Made to Order exhibition and auction items.

High arts involvement among disadvantage students is related to finding a better job, earning degrees, and volunteering. Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are more than twice as likely as their peers with low arts involvement to earn a bachelor’s degree.”
