The Luminary is pleased to announce our 2nd annual Lot 49 contemporary art auction + fundraiser on Friday, March 24th from 7pm to 10pm.
Lot 49 is a unique artist-centric auction initiated and shaped by artists as an annual fundraiser for The Luminary and a direct means of support for artists in the region and beyond. The interactive auction will feature acclaimed artists nominated by their peers, with participating artists receiving 51% of all proceeds and the remaining 49% going to support our ambitious programs - hence the name, Lot 49. The auction will include one-of-a-kind works by over 50 artists in a variety of mediums.
A VIP cocktail reception + auction preview will kick off the event from 7 to 8pm featuring complimentary wine and beer, food from area chefs and a first chance to meet the artists and purchase items in the auction. The public event follows from 8 to 11pm with the most exciting contemporary art party of the season featuring DJ sets, interactive bidding, artist-designed cocktails and more.
Tickets to the VIP Preview are $50 and may be purchased online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2845079 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for physical tickets.
