COVID-19 has hit hard, affecting each of us and each of the cultural institutions that define our communities. In these unprecedented times, LongHouse Shares takes the annual fundraising auction for LongHouse Reserve in a new direction, for the first time offering its donating artists, designers and other supporters to share in up to half the proceeds from sale of their contributions.

Bid on over 100 lots, including artwork by Derrick Adams, Ai Weiwei, Cindy Sherman, Shirin Neshat, and Daniel Arsham; and bespoke design from B&B Italia, Paola Lenti and Ligne Roset. Each work ships from a different location, as noted on the individual lot page. Please reach out to [email protected] for any further information.
