The Young Friends of the University of Virginia Art Museum will sponsor an annual Holiday Ornament Art Auction -- "Favorite Things" -- at the museum on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $30 for members and $35 for non-members. Advance reservations are required. Call the museum at (434) 243-8874 for information.

The festive evening will feature a silent auction of holiday decorations by artists from around the area and country, including John Owen, Cary Brown, and Richard Crozier.

Last year's event raised $12,000 to support "Early Visions," an educational outreach program for at-risk youth, and for the stewardship of the museum's collection.

Young Friends promotes cultural, educational, social and volunteer activities to foster the museum's role as a cultural resource for the community.
