Pot of Gold

44th annual Pot of Gold Arts Gala & Auction

With the help of volunteers, sponsors, and donors, the annual Pot of Gold auction is a signature event for the museum. Since its inception in 1978, the Pot of Gold auction supports the museum’s operating budget, education initiatives, and special programs. 

This year, we can’t wait to have you back in the museum to celebrate being together again. Now in its 44th year, we are celebrating by “Rolling out the Red Carpet!” Join us in dressing as your favorite movie character or movie star for a Hollywood Premiere-themed evening.

Bring your A (list) -game, and start writing your acceptance speech: we’ll be presenting prizes for Best Costume, Best Couple’s Costume, and Best Character Costume. 


The Online Auction is now underway through May 24! Bid now on original artwork, prints, antiques and more at KC Auction & Appraisal Co. All proceeds benefit the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art’s education programs, operational budget, and historic building conservation efforts. Bid early and bid often!
