The Museum at the Bighorns has announced it will be selling raffle tickets for a Sam Iddings painting, “Cottonwood Shade,” starting Aug. 16 through the end of September.
Tickets are $10 for one or $40 for five and must be purchased in-person at the museum. The more tickets a participant purchases, the better their chances to win the painting valued at $250.
According to the museum, all proceeds help fund the museum’s educational programs, such as History After Dark, History Day Club, Tidbits and others. The winner will be drawn on Oct. 1 by museum staff.
The painting is now on display behind the museum’s front counter. The public is invited to view the painting during museum hours. For the remainder of August, the museum will be open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday.
Beginning in September, museum hours will be from 1 – 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. The painting was donated by Crazy Woman Trading Company.
The winner of the painting will need to be able to pick up the painting from the museum. Due to various factors, the painting will not be shipped.
