Online Fundraiser: Art Auction ’21 at Palm Springs Art Museum
Palm Springs Art Museum is excited to announce that Art Auction ’21 will open online on Friday, April 9, 2021 and culminate on Friday, April 16!
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 12,000 artworks and 50,000 objects in our special collections.
This year’s COVID-related closure has placed an extraordinary financial strain on the museum, making your donation essential for us to continue to serve our community. By contributing to this year’s Art Auction, you will also provide operational support that maintains the museum’s three architecturally significant buildings—Frey House II, the Architecture and Design Center, and the main museum. Moreover, your donation ensures that Palm Springs’ leading cultural arts institution remains a world-class destination long after this pandemic subsides.
For this year’s online auction, we are delighted to partner with Sotheby’s. This collaboration will ensure that your sponsorship of Palm Springs Art Museum will be visible to a wide and well-qualified audience of art collectors who will be able to view the offerings online at Sothebys.com.
The museum recognizes the worldwide impact of COVID on artists and their practice. With this in mind, we are offering participating artists up to 50% of the hammer price on the sale of their work. Your sponsorship helps us make this possible.
