Palm Springs Art Museum is proud to announce an exciting new fundraiser: Art Auction '21 which will open online on Friday, April 9, 2021 and culminate on Friday, April 16.
Auction opens: Friday, April 9, 11:00 a.m. PST
Auction closes: Friday, April 16, 11:00 a.m. PST
Proceeds from this online event will provide vital funding to mount our exhibitions and educational programs, as well as to care for our world-class collection of artworks. And, in recognition of the worldwide impact of COVID on artists and their practice, we are offering participating artists up to 50% of the hammer price on the sale of their work. Your participation helps make all of this possible.
For this year’s online auction, we are delighted to partner with Sotheby’s.
The auction will include an array of artworks by today’s most notable artists from around the region, across the country, and internationally. Approximately 40 artworks that range in value from $5,000 to $100,000 will be made available that will appeal to a broad range of collectors. These pieces will be curated by the JoAnn McGrath Executive Director/CEO Louis Grachos and Chief Curator Rochelle Steiner, who bring decades of experience organizing successful auctions.
Participation in the auction is free and instructions on how to register will be shared at a later date.
