Huntsville Museum of Art's Communications Director, Danny Owen, said he is fortunate to have this gala this year with the museum being closed for months during the pandemic.

"We are getting back on track but this is going to help boost up the museum and local artists," said Owen.

Owen said the pandemic was a hard time, especially for artists. He is glad the museum is able to showcase their work.

"It is our mission here at the museum to bring people and art together," said Owen.
