Thank You for JOINing us for Auction 2023!

President Mary Grant, Auction co-chairs Daren Bascome ‘93 and Elizabeth Lowrey H’19, and the 2023 MassArt Auction Committee thank you for joining us in person or online as we celebrated 150 years of Massachusetts College of Art and Design at this year's MassArt Auction! As the centerpiece of MassArt's 150th anniversary celebrations this year, we were delighted to welcome folks back to campus of this beloved art event, which was a resounding success once again. We are thrilled to announce that we raised over $1 million in support of student scholarships and academic programming for the ninth year in a row! 

Thank you for celebrating with us at this special MassArt Auction and for your support of the next generation of artists and designers!
