The Russell is the premiere fundraising event for the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana, attracting artists, collectors, and patrons from around the country. The three-day schedule of events and exhibitions culminates in Saturday’s Live Auction featuring important pieces by Charles M. Russell and other historic artists. This sale also showcases new work by the country’s most acclaimed contemporary western artists. The Russell, now recognized as one of the most prestigious western art events in the country, provides critical funding through commissions and premiums that directly support the museum’s educational programs and cultural outreach..
