MassArt Auction

The 25th MassArt Auction
BUY ART. FOSTER CREATIVITY.

As the nation’s only independent public college of art and design, MassArt presents our signature event, the annual benefit art auction. Monies raised through the Auction go directly to our most precious asset – our students and their education. Your generosity provides life-changing scholarship funds for talented and high-achieving students to receive a world-class MassArt education, regardless of financial means.

The MassArt Auction is one of the largest visual art auctions in New England and is a destination for collectors seeking to purchase contemporary artworks and support the nation’s leading public art college. Now in it’s 25th year, this year’s Auction will include over 300 works of art in live and silent auctions. Works from internationally renowned artists will be auctioned off, including Ambreen Butt (MassArt ’97), Sanford Biggers, Mark Cooper, Steve Locke (MassArt ’01/Faculty), Abelardo Morell (MassArt Faculty), Laura McPhee (MassArt Faculty), Sheila Pepe (MassArt '83), Robert Rauschenberg, Sarah Sze and Andy Warhol.
