Guests receive a set number of votes with the purchase of event tickets. Attendees then vote on which of the exhibited artworks they think should become part of a museum's permanent collection. Those artworks with the highest number of votes will be purchased with funds pooled from the ticket sales. This year, 18 pieces were selected from 114 submissions from across the world. In addition to a few local Houstonians, the selection includes artwork from Russia, the United Kingdom and Canada. This year, the event benefits the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
