The Drawing Center 2019 Benefit Auction + Party

2019 Benefit Auction + Party
Thursday, September 19
6:30 – 9:30pm
at The Drawing Center
35 Wooster Street, New York City

The Drawing Center will host its 2019 Benefit Auction + Party on Thursday, September 19. The evening will include cocktails, a live DJ, festive snacks, and a silent auction featuring works on paper generously donated by over 40 prominent artists, both emerging and well-established.

Funds raised though this event will provide crucial support to the upcoming year of exhibitions and programs at The Drawing Center. And what a year it will be with The Pencil Is a Key: Drawings by Incarcerated Artists opening in October, followed by monographic exhibitions of Curtis Talwst Santiago, Guo Fengyi, and Huguette Caland. Next Spring, we will also reprise Bellwethers: The Culture of Controversy, our new, and wildly successful speaking series that convenes writers, cultural critics, and artists to examine a timely indicator, word, or phrase emblematic of a polemical topic of our moment.

Purchase a ticket today and support the only nonprofit arts institution in the United States dedicated entirely to the medium of drawing!
