Student Call for art

Are you a MassArt Senior or Grad student? Join us Thursday, November 29, 2018 to submit up to three artworks of any medium for consideration in the 30th Anniversary MassArt Auction. Please drop-off your artwork between 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM at the Huntington Studio on the 3rd floor of the Design and Media Center.  You may pick-up your artwork the same day between  3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Participating in the MassArt Auction is a great way to gain exposure. Around 700 art collectors attend the event annually to purchase artwork and support the next generation of artists like you. Most importantly, the MassArt Auction has raised more than $1 million  in support of student scholarships and academic programs for the past four years!

If your work is chosen to be a part of the auction, you will be invited to  attend the auction (4/27) and opening reception (4/22) and have the option to receive up to 50% of the proceeds of your sale. Faculty and auction committee members will teach you how to market your artwork to potential buyers during our annual Mock Auction in the spring.
