Get ready for the Metal Museum's BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR!

OCTOBER 17 - 20

Every year, over 100 metalsmiths from across the country come to Memphis to make repairs on metal objects brought in by the community, all to raise funds for the Museum. Bring your metal items to the Metal Museum this fall and have them restored to their former glory. All proceeds help support annual programming such as educational initiatives, new exhibitions, and artist residency programs.


On Saturday, October 19, the Metal Museum invites artists of all skill levels to participate in a Family Fun Day. In addition to family activities, the Museum celebrates fine art as the Museum welcomes Sarah Perkins with the opening of the award-winning Master Metalsmith series. The event wraps up with the Dinner + Art Auction. Representing the generosity of the metalsmithing and Memphis communities, the Art Auction raises over $40,000 to benefit Museum programs throughout the year.
