MassArt Auction


Building upon the success of last year’s all virtual event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,  Massachusetts College of Art and Design is pleased to announce our plans for the 2021 MassArt Auction. 

Times are changing, and so are we. As MassArt welcomes students back this fall for a return to learning and making in a hybrid environment, the Auction team begins its preparations for the 2021 MassArt Auction, which will also take on a hybrid format this year. The health and safety of our community members, on and off-campus, are important to us. For the 2021 Auction we plan to host a Virtual Silent Auction and a smaller scale, in-person Live Auction event on April 10, 2021, respecting the safety protocols necessary to protect our community.*  

Our students have demonstrated incredible perseverance and dedication to pursuing their education, adapting to the ever-growing challenges of this unprecedented year. Our team is excited to rise to the occasion again this year, exploring creative and innovative ways to adapt the MassArt Auction in order to continue to provide top quality art to our community and the support that our community of artists need.  

The proceeds of this spectacular event provide vital scholarship aid and academic program support for our deserving students. MassArt is the nation’s only independent public college of art and design and is dedicated to providing an exceptional and affordable education for the next generation of artists and designers. 

We hope you will join us as we celebrate the 32nd year of the MassArt Auction and be a part of another year of this highly anticipated Boston tradition.
