The inaugural Moonlight Art Gala will bring together dozens of acclaimed local artists to auction their works, benefiting Socorro's upcoming art program (Luz de Luna Artes).

Luz de Luna Artes will partner with local artists and community organizers to provide art workshops for families and fund public art murals in the Socorro region.

Moonlight Adobe Hall located inside historic Casa Apodaca, sits right across the street from the art gallery Casa Ortiz, Three Missions Brewery, and Bodega Loya, only 20-minutes away from downtown El Paso.

Surrounded by adobe buildings and built-in 1900, Casa Apodaca is over a century old, and Moonlight Adobe Hall was once the site of the area's first silent movie theatre. The theatre, which opened in 1902, later went on to premiere the original Pancho Villa silent movie in 1919.

Years later, the historic theatre still stands today thanks to natives Gabriel Marquez and Tamara Gastelum, who brought the theatre back to life, creating a venue accomodating many celebrations and social events.

For one night only, discover El Paso's phenomenal talent at the Moonlight Art Gala: An Art Auction for the Moved, where attendees can browse a curated selection of over 70 pieces showcased by 25 regional artists that promise to make the evening "come alive with plays on color, movement, and form."
