Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Tickets to this event are now closed. Please join us for the online auction open to everyone. All proceeds support the mission of The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA). Bidding opens Tuesday, September 6 at 12:00 PM and closes on Saturday, September 10 at 8:00 PM (CST).
The Museum of Russian Art 20th Anniversary Legacy Dinner raises essential support for the Museum and its mission of promoting cultural understanding through exhibitions and programming. Unfolding TMORA’s story over the last 20 years, the Museum acknowledges all those who have contributed to its successful emergence, survival and growth, despite economic crises, pandemics, and wars. TMORA has become part of Minnesota’s rich cultural fabric and a source of visual, experiential knowledge about the vast and often troubled region that was the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, now existing as fifteen independent countries. TMORA also presents a chance to learn more about the diverse cultures of our fellow Minnesotans, immigrants from the region — some arriving recently to escape the perils of Putin’s regime. The mission of TMORA is impactful, and we look forward to continuing this important work.
In honor of the 20th anniversary, the Robert J. Brokop Trust will match $100,000 in proceeds from the silent auction, live auction, and donations to the event. If you’re not able to attend the event on September 10, this presents a fantastic opportunity for you to double the impact of your support for TMORA during this momentous occasion!
