The ICA’s Live Auction Gala is one of the most anticipated live auction events in the Bay Area and is known to have the premiere selection of artwork, from the most celebrated artists of our time and rising stars alike.
“There are nearly 200 works by local, regional and national contemporary artists in every media under the sun. With such a wide variety, our visitors can see what artists are making and thinking about right now. It’s a finger on the pulse of the current art scene in the Bay Area and beyond. There is literally something for everyone,” states ICA Executive Director Cathy Kimball. The auction will include exceptional works donated from highly acclaimed artists, including Mark Adams, Lauren DiCiocco, Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Brown, Russell Crotty, Frank Lobdell, Kara Maria, Amy Ellingson, Gustavo Ramos Rivera, Manuel Neri and Heather Wilcoxon.
