2020 Scottsdale Arts Festival Online Art Auction
The Scottsdale Arts Festival hosts an annual online art auction to help raise funds for arts education programs for youth presented at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA). More than 50,000 children benefit from these programs each year. This year’s 2019 auction raised $11,315.76 towards arts education!
The auction features original works of art in all media generously donated by Festival artists, with something for every taste and budget. Auction items are displayed inside Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts during Festival weekend.
Auction bidding is quick, easy, and fun! Bidders may use a smartphone, tablet, or personal computer to pre-register, view and bid on auction items 24/7 through the auction website. Representatives are also available at the auction to provide personal assistance with bidding.
The auction opens for bidding during Festival weekend.
Proceeds from the auction benefit the nonprofit Scottsdale Arts.
About Scottsdale Arts
Scottsdale Arts was established in 1987 as a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) management company and vested with the responsibility to manage Scottsdale’s premier arts and cultural facility, then known as the Scottsdale Center for the Arts. Since then, Scottsdale Arts has evolved into its present structure as a unique umbrella organization with three dynamic operating divisions – each with a distinct focus and mission – that span the visual and performing arts. Through its three divisions, Scottsdale Arts offers diverse, high-quality arts experiences to hundreds of thousands of Scottsdale residents and visitors annually in addition to fostering the active engagement of government, business, education and the private sector in the arts.
