RAM 75th Anniversary Celebration Gala “Evening in Paris”

Saturday, April 29, 2023 • 6:00 – 11:00 p.m.

Celebrate joie de vivre!

Art has been adding joy to life for 75 years through the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum. Come celebrate it with us!


Enter la Belle Epoche (“the beautiful era”) of Paris and feel the excitement of the City of Light. Stroll along the boulevard in this Paris café setting; talk with artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Camille Pissaro. Clasp the hand of your partner for a spontaneous whirl under the glow of the lamp posts, to the romantic tunes of the street musicians. All within the luxury of the event room at the ACHE Research Institute, 1000 Fianna Way.

  • French cuisine
  • Champagne and libations
  • Silent auction of 6×6 paintings in homage to Parisian artists by local artists
  • Live auction, including trip to Gay Paree for two!
  • Real, live Can-Can dancers provided by Western Arkansas Ballet
  • “A Look Back: 75 Years” on the big screen
  • Eiffel Tower Diamond Studs Draw
  • And finally, dancing the night away to the music of the “Larry B Soul Experience” Band!
