Welcome to this select offering. Each year, we work to bring together items that represent a broad range of artistic disciplines. Collector pieces that include the Foundation's Limited Edition Print Series, The Great American Cowboy, are always popular among bidders.

Proceeds from the auction are used to help fund scholarship programs made available to students from the five-state region of North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska and who are seeking post-secondary education in agriculturally related career fields.

Advance bids on items listed below are also being taken. If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me at 605-347-2562 or jjohnson@firstwesternbank.com. See you at the auction!
