CMA: Live Benefit Auction 2018

Closes Nov 14 3:30 PM EST

Support the Children's Museum of the Arts' 30th year of providing high-quality arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City by purchasing a work in this year's Benefit Auction! To bid in this year's Live Auction, join us at our Art Auction & Cocktail Party on November 14th at the Children's Museum of the Arts. Purchase your ticket here!

CMA works to promote access to the arts for all children, regardless of ability or socioeconomic status. All proceeds from artwork sold at the auction support CMA’s free community programs, which bring high-quality arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City. These programs serve children on the autism spectrum, those with physical disabilities, children living in transitional housing, families in the NYC child welfare system, and more. Last year, of the 138,000 children and families served by CMA, 42,000 were served completely free of charge - a full 30%! Proceeds from the auction directly support CMA’s ability to provide families with access to these vital resources free of charge. Works will be on view at the Museum from November 1st to November 25th, 2018.

Preliminary bidding in the live auction is open exclusively on Artsy and will close on Wednesday, November 14th at 3:30pm ET. Online bids will be transferred and executed at the benefit event later that night.
