MassArt Auction


The 2021 MassArt Auction Committee and MassArt’s Auction team have been exploring creative and innovative ways to bring the MassArt Auction to you this year and we're excited share them all with you! 

Of course, the health and safety of our community members, on and off-campus, are important to us. So, we’re building upon the success of last year’s all virtual event with a season packed with 2021 MassArt Auction virtual events.*

Featuring over 300 contemporary artists and artworks, 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. You won’t find this depth and breadth of artwork selection anywhere else!
