McAllen, TX, – The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) announces the postponement of their biggest fundraiser, the 12th Annual Night at the Brew-seum, known as “Brew-seum” by locals who attend each year. In the wake of recent health concerns, the IMAS leadership has continued to keep visitor safety at the top of its priority list.
The event has grown in size and popularity over the years and expected a sell-out crowd once again this year. For the safety of all visitors, vendors, and staff, this much-anticipated event and fundraiser, which supports museum exhibits and programming, has been rescheduled for June 6, 2020. In addition, the IMAS will not be hosting the annual Bunny Bash, previously scheduled for April 11.
Brew-seum has always been a party with a purpose – all the funds raised support the art and science education, exhibits and programs at the museum, reaching over 30,000 children from low-income school districts annually. The IMAS provides a unique informal learning environment for these children from schools around the Rio Grande Valley.
The IMAS Empty Barrels Food and Fund Drive in support of the Food Bank RGV will continue as planned with six participating locations including Clark Knapp Honda, 5×5 Brewing Co., Roosevelt’s at 7, Grain to Glass, and the McAllen Incubator. These six wine and whiskey barrels are collecting non-perishable foods and monetary donations helping to raise awareness and fight hunger in the Rio Grande Valley. Visit brew-seum.com for a map and locations for the food and fund drive. Participating artists include Celina Michel, Irene Uribe, James Jenson, Jason Perez, Kirk Clark, and Sandy Magallan. Project partners also include 5×5 Brewing Co., Clark Chevrolet, and Clark Knapp Honda, Hilmy Cellars, L&F Distributors, and Lowe’s Home Improvement.
The IMAS will continue regular open hours and continues to take precautionary measures in maintaining a clean and safe environment for all guests. For more information visit theimasonline.org or call (956) 681-2800.
