Silent Auction

The ARTSGALA silent auction offers a wide assortment of amazing artwork, luxury gift baskets, fine dining certificates, top-quality wine and cigars, entertainment packages, and much more. All proceeds from the silent auction directly support scholarships for our students in the fine and performing arts. This year we have partnered with Qtego Auction Services so guests can place bids directly on their mobile phone, tablet, or computer.

Get a head start on the auction by viewing over 100 incredible items and placing your bids now! This will give you more time at ARTSGALA for enjoying all the wonderful student entertainment we have in store. You can see the auction items in person in the Stein Galleries the night of the Gala.
