About the Auction

On April 13, 2013, MassArt will celebrate its 24th Annual Benefit Art Auction, one of the largest and most prestigious art auctions in greater Boston and a critical fundraiser for the college.

The MassArt Auction has established itself as a celebration of the artist and a tribute to the incredible generosity of the artistic community.  Each year, more than 300 nationally and internationally renowned artists participate in this annual rite of spring, including many of our distinguished alumni, faculty, staff, graduating seniors, and master's degree candidates.

The auction has become increasingly popular among collectors and art enthusiasts seeking to view and purchase exceptional contemporary art in a festive environment.  Whether you are a passionate and seasoned connoisseur or a new collector, the auction has something for every taste and budget, and we're certain you'll find a new treasure to take home.

Perhaps most importantly, the MassArt Auction is the college's single largest fundraising event of the year.  Over the past twenty-plus years, it has raised millions of dollars to enhance academic programs, provide awards and scholarships for talented students, and introduce art to Boston-area schoolchildren through community outreach.

Academic excellence, equal access, and civic engagement are MassArt's top priorities, and every dollar you spend at the auction makes these initiatives a reality.  We hope you will join us for MassArt's 24th Annual Benefit Art Auction and support the next generation of creativity.
