Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Art Auction & Cocktail Party returns this year for a dazzling night on Wednesday, November 8. The museum will be transformed into an elegant venue featuring 100 contemporary art works donated by artists specially chosen by 10 guest curators. Join us for a VIP evening celebrating the individuals, artists, and supporters who have made CMA the premier children’s museum in the city over the last 29 years. A silent auction runs throughout the evening, with all proceeds benefiting CMA.

Bidding will open on October 25, 2017 at noon on Artsy!
