El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) invites the public to its Holiday Members’ Choice from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 8.
This event is open to both museum members and the general public. Members will vote on the annual purchase of art for EPMA’s permanent collection. Museum visitors who are not yet members can purchase a membership that evening and be able to cast their vote for this year’s purchase.
This acquisition is made possible by a generous ongoing gift from the Robert and Mabel Lipscomb Foundation, a trust managed by JP Morgan Chase Bank.
This year’s theme is the art of diverse and significant contemporary female American artists: Jenny Holzer, Carrie Mae Weems, Maria Martinez-Cañas, and Asya Reznikov. The winning artwork will be announced at 7 p.m.
To add to the festive holiday atmosphere and encourage the gift of art, the museum will also host a Holiday Pop-Up Shop featuring EPMA teaching artists and local vendors. There will also be a photo booth and the museum store will be open throughout the event.
