Art Museum: Get ready to `Howl at the Moon’

Aspen Times Staff Report

The Aspen Art Museum will present “Howl at the Moon V” on Friday, July 30. The annual extravaganza is aimed at supporting the arts programming provided by the museum.

This year’s party will again be held at The Gitalong Ranch in Woody Creek.

The evening will kick off with wine tasting and an auction, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sarah Lindsey, premiere auctioneer of Christie’s, Inc., in New York, will be in charge of the wine auction.

A cocktail reception will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the rustic Gitalong Barn, followed by a dinner provided by Aspen restaurants and caterers, served at 8 p.m. in the cabaret tent.

The dueling Howl at the Moon Saloon piano players will perform throughout dinner. Surprise guest musicians are also in store who will make appearances throughout the evening. After dinner, there will be plenty of time for dancing.

“Howl at the Moon is in its fifth year and again will prove to be an evening of howling good fun and fine wines,” said Suzanne Farver, A.A.M. executive director. “Our supporters always look forward to this event as a highlight of their summer calendars and the Howl at the Moon Saloon players are sure to have everyone on the dance floor well into the night.”

The Howl at the Moon celebration has sold out every year, and reservations are available. Sponsorships are sold for Top Dogs at $5,000, Gold Coyotes at $2,500, and Silver Foxes at $1,250.

Reservations can be made by calling the Aspen Art Museum at 925-8050. Prices for nonreserved seating are: $250 per person for wine tasting, dinner and dancing, and $150 per person for the cocktail reception, dinner and dancing.

Money from the evening will help the Art Museum provide the community with changing exhibits, lectures, classes and other special events in the visual arts.
