The Russell: The Sale to benefit the C.M Russell Museum is a fine art exhibition and the premiere three-day fundraising event for the Russell Museum.

This is a silent auction of fine art, objects, and unique travel experience. Art that will be sold at the Saturday live auction will also be available for viewing. Appetizers, hosted refreshments and the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones will all be a part of the Western hospitality people will receive while at the world-famous C.M. Russell Museum.
Art in Action, The Russell's quick finish event, will take place at the Meadow Lark

This quick finish event gives artists several hours to finish a piece of art while interacting with the crowd. Art in Action includes brunch, hosted refreshments, entertainment, and a live auction to sell the completed works of art. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the museum by participating artists.
