“Artrageous has become one of our most popular and engaging fundraising efforts,” says museum CEO Mark Prior. “For art lovers, it offers a curated opportunity to add to their personal collections while also providing critical support to the museum’s vital presence as the cultural hub of the Coachella Valley.” All proceeds benefit the museum’s exhibitions, programming, education and performances.
The 100 available works come from 80 diverse artists, including Blake Baxter, Roy De Forest, John Divola, D.J.Hall, Jim Isermann, Hung Liu, Gabriella Sanchez, Julius Shulman, Adam Silverman, Phillip K. Smith III, and Andrea Zittel.
Gabriella Sanchez’s work as a fine artist centers around the tension of duality and explores how meaning is created and received through both text and imagery.
Representatives from ARTSY will be available to help attendees register, obtain bid numbers, and assist during the live auction on March 18. Noted appraiser and television personality Donald Osborne, seen regularly on CNBC’s Jay Leno’s Garage, will serve as auctioneer. Cuistot and Raymond James are the evening’s corporate sponsors.
