Preview Gala Fundraiser

January 13 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

John Mellencamp: Paintings & Assemblages


Thank you to all who have supported the Museum of Art – DeLand by purchasing tickets to our January 13th VIP Preview Gala & Fundraiser. Unfortunately, in light of the recent surge in new COVID cases, the Board of Trustees has decided to postpone the event. Your safety, and that of our staff, drives this decision.
Rest assured, the exciting exhibition of John Mellencamp: Paintings & Assemblages will still be on view for the entire scheduled showing at our downtown gallery. But our related celebrations must unfortunately take a pause.
It has been a difficult 2 years for everyone and we were looking forward to opening the Mellencamp exhibit with our first major fundraiser since 2020. We will reschedule as soon as infection numbers begin a significant downward trend. For all who purchased tickets, your kind donation will transfer to the new date selected, and new tickets will be issued to you. The Members’ Opening on January 14th is also cancelled; however, the exhibit will open on January 14 at 10:00 a.m. and run through March 27th.
We hope this delay will contribute to a healthier community, a less stressed healthcare system, and help mitigate the spread of the virus. Thank you for understanding and thank you for supporting the Museum of Art – DeLand.
