Saturday, May 2nd is the annual fundraising Gala at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo.  Part of it is the Art Auction -- artists donate a work and people at the Gala can bid on them -- the proceeds in some cases going  100% to the museum, in others being split with the artist.  Prairie Public's Bill Thomas has a special attraction for these auction shows -- he thinks they have a special excitement because of the type of works the artists contribute.

This is his full interview (as opposed to the edited version that was on the air) with Rebecca Dunham, the Plains Art Museum's Curator, who assembled and hung the show.
