Published: Jun 19, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 19, 2013) — Love rummage sales and the hunt for bargains and discarded treasures? Or maybe you need to lighten the load at your own house this summer? Then don't forget to check out the White Elephant Rummage Sale presented by the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky.

The museum is still collecting items for the sale. Suggested items include art, books, bric-a-brac, CDs, DVDs, small furniture, household goods, jewelry, toys and vintage accessories, like hats, gloves and purses. Items should still be in good condition.

 

To donate items to the White Elephant Rummage Sale, individuals may drop off items at the museum's loading dock behind the Singletary Center for the Arts, located on Patterson Drive off Rose Street. Donations can be dropped off on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., or individuals can arrange to have items picked up by calling the museum at 859-257-6218.

 

Proceeds from the sale will benefit exhibitions and events presented by the Art Museum at UK. Donations to the sale are tax deductible.

And for those looking for treasures, the Art Museum at UK’s White Elephant Rummage Sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 20, in the President’s Room of the Singletary Center for the Arts. The event is free and open to the public, and free parking will be available in all UK lots.

For more information on the White Elephant Rummage Sale, contact the Art Museum at UK at 859-257-5716 or visit online at www.uky.edu/ArtMuseum.

 

The mission of the Art Museum at UK, part of the UK College of Fine Arts, is to promote the understanding and appreciation of art to enhance the quality of life for the people of Kentucky through collecting, exhibiting, preserving and interpreting outstanding works of visual art from all cultures. Home to a collection of more than 4,500 objects, including American and European paintings, drawings, photographs, prints and sculpture, the Art Museum at UK presents both special exhibitions and shows of work from their permanent collection.
