Art & Design Auction
June 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$125
Mark your calendars now for the Kansas City Art Institute’s Art & Design Auction on June 3 when KCAI’s newest studios and The Rowland Commons will be the epicenter for a fabulous evening of fine art and festive fare. It’s an event so big and bold, it only happens every other year.
Honorary Chairs Sue and Lewis Nerman and Event Chairs Abby and Alex Wendel are planning an evening perfect for friends who share a passion for supporting art and design education. Keith Jacobshagen (’65 design) is the Star Artist and one of his signature landscape paintings will be featured in the live auction. The silent auction, hosted by Paddle8, an international art auction site, will open two weeks before the event, giving you plenty of time to bid on artwork created and donated by distinguished alumni, faculty and friends of KCAI. The auctioneer for the live auction is Kansas City native Quig Bruning, vice president and specialist in the jewelry department at Sotheby’s Auction House.
Proceeds from this event support scholarships for students; expansion of curricula and programs; recruiting and retaining distinguished faculty members; and technology acquisitions. The auction ensures KCAI maintains its reputation as one of the premier institutions of higher education in art and design.
