A visit to the world-renowned Cleveland Museum of Art is always an enjoyable and educational cultural experience. But not many people have the opportunity to tour the museum accompanied by an expert who can describe the history and cultural significance of the fabulous items in the Museum's collection. The winner of this experience will enjoy a private tour for up to six people with CMA curator Stephen Harrison, Curator of Decorative Art and Design followed by a delicious brunch at Provenance, the Museum's celebrated Atrium cafe and restaurant.

Goodyear blimp rides are by invitation only, so winning an auction is your best chance to check this off your bucket list. The brand new, state-of-the-art, semi-rigid airship that will carry you aloft for a half hour is, according to Goodyear, the most radical reengineering of the iconic “blimps” in the company’s 90+ years of airships—larger, faster, and more maneuverable than all its predecessors. You will be seated comfortably in a longer, streamlined gondola with a wraparound window view of the earth a thousand feet or so below, as you glide along at around 35 mph. Passengers must be able to enter and exit quickly via a 5-step ladder. For more details, including additional passenger information: http://www.goodyearblimp.com/cfmx/web/blimp/. Flights primarily available November 2016 through April 2017.
Two raffle tickets will be selected. The first winner will have the option to choose
from one of the following prize options. The second-place winner will receive the
Bucket o’ Booze
Great Lakes Theater trustees and friends want your liquor cabinet to be ready for

about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.”

Digital giclee canvas print on 1 1.2” stretcher frame 20 x 8 inches, edition 1/1 (one-of-a-kind, single-edition print)
Own this original work of art created through an innovative process melding individual inspiration and cutting-edge digital technology. Drawing on twenty years of design and programming experience, artist Greggory D. Hill has experimented with introducing “the informed randomness of computer programming” into his method of digital printmaking. Hill’s digital prints have been exhibited in Los Angeles, Colorado, and Chagrin Falls. He describes his process as “the tension between human intention and random variation, will and luck, meaning and chaos,” writing his computer code “to design visual compositions and configure various elements such as color and complexity, yet within those constraints I allow the computer to dance its random dance.”
