Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati: The Regional Benefit Auction 2022

Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Artsy are proud to present The Regional Benefit Auction. The 2022 CAC Gala and online benefit auction are named after the 2022 exhibition, The Regional, the first major multi-museum survey dedicated to contemporary artists based in the Midwest. The exhibition, on view through September 11 at the Kemper Museum (Kansas City, Missouri), features new and recent work by approximately 25 artists working across painting, photography, installation, and performance.

Auction proceeds support all that the CAC offers, from free general admission to featured exhibitions and performances. Proceeds contribute to the Contemporary Arts Center’s education programs, staffing and community engagement, operating costs, artist fees and more. Founded in 1939, the CAC resides in Zaha Hadid’s landmark Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art.

Additional artworks available exclusively at The Regional Gala + Afterparty on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at the CAC. Limited tickets available. Click to purchase.
