MASS MoCA: Benefit Auction 2021
This year, we honor our founding director Joe Thompson as he departs after a 33-year tenure at MASS MoCA. Under his visionary leadership, MASS MoCA has become one of the world’s most prolific venues for nurturing and creating new art, especially art that requires generous space and extended time. In honor of Joe’s life’s work building a place where artists can dream big, proceeds from this year’s auction will establish the Joe Thompson “Yes” Fund, which will directly support the museum’s mission to champion artists and art-making in all forms.
In conjunction with our auction, we are also offering a series of multiples from MASS MoCA exhibiting artists Kim Faler, Jenny Holzer, Glenn Kaino, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Wendy Red Star. All proceeds from the sales of these works also support the Joe Thompson “Yes” Fund. Please visit our institutional page to purchase.
With your help, MASS MoCA can continue to be an open platform for the sharing of bold new ideas, as we look toward a future that needs them more than ever. Donate here.
Bidding for the auction will close on Friday, April 30th at 2:00pm EDT.
