The Benefit Art Auction

About

Get your paddles ready!

As we look forward to the seventeenth iteration of the MCA Art Auction, we note with pride that it has earned an outstanding reputation in the art world, serving as a model of support for today’s premier museums. Continuing this legacy, this year’s Benefit Art Auction chairs, Marilyn and Larry Fields and Barbara Bluhm-Kaul and Don Kaul, and their committee have assembled an exceptionally high caliber of art. Their dedication has produced an irresistible group of work from 114 artists, and will surely result in one of the most successful auctions in our history.

For a short time the works will be on view in our galleries, October 20–23. If you’d like to learn more about the individual works, descriptions are available on the auction website. Please contact Marcela Andrade (mandrade@mcachiago.org, 312-397-4035), to be notified or register to bid live by telephone on October 23.

Whether you bid online, in person, or at a preview event, we thank you for supporting the MCA, and we wish you all the best at the auction block!
