Art Auction 2020 (Postponed)

Please not that Art Auction 2020 has been postponed. Check back here for updates.

Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s highly anticipated biennial Art Auction returns on May 2. This popular fundraising event features live and silent auctions of approximately 100 works by early career and internationally recognized artists, including Leonardo Drew, June Edmonds, Luchita Hurtado, Jean Lowe, Kim MacConnel, Rubén Ortiz Torres, Trevor Paglen, Helen Pashgian, Ed Ruscha, Marnie Weber, and James Welling.

Art Auction allows visitors to switch from being observers of art to active collectors, a distinct opportunity for the art-curious and first time buyers. Whether you’re a long-time attendee, aspiring collector, or just ready to enjoy a dynamic fundraiser, come celebrate with MCASD!

Bid on painting, sculpture, and works on paper at this special evening in support of MCASD exhibitions and programs. All works are carefully considered by MCASD’s Director and Curators, and are available at various starting price points. 

General Tickets: $150 MCASD Members / $175 Non-Members
General tickets include access to the cocktail reception, silent auction, standing tickets to the live auction, and dessert reception.

Gold Circle Tickets: $250 MCASD Members / $275 Non-Members
Gold Circle ticket holders may book a private curatorial tour of the auction works and will have preferred seaing at the live auction. In addition, Gold Circle ticket holders will receive a special-edition paddle designed by artist June Edmonds (limited quantity) and a listing in the auction’s program.
