The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum's Summer Soiree Auction is now open!

Hello friends! This online auction, in conjunction with our Annual Summer Soiree on August 5th, is the Dallin Museum's largest and most important annual fundraising initiative.

Proceeds will ensure the care and preservation of Dallin’s priceless works of art and the development of extraordinary programs and events. In addition, funds raised during this event will allow us to achieve the following strategic goals in 2018-2019:

  • Unveil new artworks and a self-guided tour.
  • Expand group tours and art-making programs for children and adults.
  • Implement upgrades to the Museum's exhibits and galleries.

About the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum

The Dallin Museum is only institution in the country solely dedicated to celebrating the legacy of the acclaimed sculptor, educator, and humanitarian who lived and worked in Arlington, Massachusetts. Cyrus Dallin (1861-1944) is known for some of America's most iconic sculptures, including "Appeal to the Great Spirit" in front of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and "Paul Revere" in Boston's North End. In the intimate setting of the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum, visitors can experience over 80 artworks that range in subject from historic and allegorical figures, to deeply personal portrayals of Native people and family members.

Cyrus Dallin created art that would empower and uplift. He advocated tirelessly for the rights of Native people. He devoted forty years of his life to teaching, and mentored a generation of Boston sculptors. Without his tremendous civic involvement, his hometowns of Springville, Utah and Arlington would not be the vibrant communities they are today.

In furthering its mission, the Dallin Museum meets an important community need by making fine art accessible to all. General admission is a small suggested donation (no one is ever turned away) and program fees are free or kept to a minimum.
