Atlanta’s most fun, most irreverent auction has a prom theme this year! Now is your chance to dust off that tux or gown from the back of your closet. Atlanta District 2 City Councilmember Kwanza Hall will serve as our Honorary Chair, and the live auction will be hosted by Mike Stasny!
The 6th annual Art Crush Auction is your chance to snatch up some fabulous works on paper by over 100 emerging and midcareer artists from Atlanta and the South. Works on paper are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Host Committee will have early access and first dibs on the works. Myott Studio has generously offered a 40% off discount for the framing of Art Crush Auction works!
Join us for the live auction performance featuring Dad’s Garage performers and a chance to bid on one-of-a-kind experiences, including a 3-day trip to New Orleans and the Joan Mitchell Center, a blacksmithing lesson with Goat n Hammer, and a chef-created dinner inspired by the “Gut Feelings” exhibition at the Zuckerman Museum of Art. Front row seating is reserved for Host Committee members during the live auction.
