NEW ULM — Guests at the Brown County Historical Society’s A Night at the (BCHS) Museum –“A Gala Event,” In the “Still” of the Night, will have an opportunity to own an original piece of artwork painted by a Brown County artist. They will step back in time to the Prohibition era and meet characters like Al Capone, Carrie Nation, and Emma and George Marti at this Fourth Annual Gala event on Saturday September 21

Each piece of artwork in the silent auction is unique, painted on an original slate tile from the roof of the museum. The contributing artists include Gina Windschitl and Peggy Tauer of Sleepy Eye, Pearl Ziegenhagen of Clements, Neil Neidt of Springfield and Sandy Adams and Maggie Schwab of New Ulm.

Enjoy a beverage and appetizers while immersing yourself in the ambiance of the 1920s. The Sleepy Eye Concertina Club will provide mood music while you find out who is making homemade booze and where they are hiding it.

Pick up a “hooch card” and fill it with signatures of the characters you meet during the social hour at the Brown County Museum and Annex Meeting Room from 5:15 pm – 6:45 pm.

The event continues at Lola’s Bistro where you will enjoy a special meal and desert starting at 7:00 pm. Add to the excitement of the evening and attend in costume from the 1920s or recreate your favorite Prohibition character!
