Bid on painting, sculpture, and works on paper by early career and internationally recognized artists including John Baldessari, Liza Lou, Wangechi Mutu, and Ed Ruscha. All works are carefully considered by MCASD’s Director and Curators, and are available at various starting price points. 

We are pleased to announce Christie’s as our official auction house partner, and Senior Vice President Lydia Fenet as auctioneer for the evening.

Can’t wait? Gold Circle ticket holders will get the first look at an exclusive VIP Preview Reception on Saturday, March 10, 2018, and will receive a limited-edition Art Auction 2018 paddle designed by artist Mara De Luca.

The works in Art Auction 2018 will be on view from March 10 through March 28, 2018.
