About Our Auction

Welcome to the Craft Contemporary Silent Auction where everyone is invited to bid! Held in conjunction with our annual Gala, you will find artwork and fun local experiences. The artwork has been generously donated by craft-inspired artists based in Los Angeles and represents Craft Contemporary's mission to reveal the potential of craft. Bid here online and visit www.craftcontemporary.org/gala-2022/ to learn more about attending the Gala in person.

Proceeds from the silent auction provide essential funds for Craft Contemporary's 2023 exhibitions and educational programs including our annual Clay Biennial, our teen after-school program, and our many opportunities to learn from the most creative makers around.

IMPORTANT! PLEASE NOTE: Online bidding ends at 11AM PST on October 14. The Silent Auction will resume for IN-PERSON BIDDING ONLY during the Gala event on October 15 from 6 – 8PM PST. Bidding will conclude at 8PM PST. If you're unable to attend the event and want to keep bidding, contact Suzanne Isken at suzanne@craftcontemporary.org to arrange a proxy for your maximum bid level.

About Craft Contemporary

Craft Contemporary is a non-collecting museum for contemporary art made from craft materials and processes. Our mission is to reveal the potential of craft to educate, captivate, provoke, and empower. In addition to presenting six exhibitions annually, the museum offers 90+ art-making workshops and public programs each year. We present work by emerging and established artists who take traditional craft techniques in new and surprising directions; prioritize the presentation of work by culturally diverse and underrecognized artists, foster collaboration between artists and the public; engage audiences with hands-on experiences, and utilize our public spaces to provide the greatest opportunity for the experience of art.
