SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will hold its biennial art auction at the museum on April 24, 2013. Organized by SFMOMA’s Modern Art Council, the museum’s premier fund-raising auxiliary, this highly anticipated event will feature more than 40 lots representing an exceptional range of work by celebrated artists with strong ties to the museum and its world-class collection of modern and contemporary art.

SFMOMA’s art auction raises essential funds for the museum’s exhibitions and programs, and enables SFMOMA to serve more than 50,000 students, teachers, and families with free access to innovative education programs each year.

Led by auctioneer Patrick Meade from Bonhams, the evening will feature both live and silent auctions, providing access to works by internationally renowned artists as such as Jim Campbell, Jasper Johns, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, and Garry Winogrand, along with a growing list of other photographs, paintings, drawings, and design objects from top galleries nationwide.

Art Auction 2013 attendees will enjoy champagne and cocktails, creative culinary offerings by McCalls catering, and—new to the event this year—a live performance (to be announced) in the museum’s Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Atrium. Following a preview reception for VIP ticket holders, collectors and art enthusiasts at all levels of interest will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of works by both established and emerging artists represented in SFMOMA’s collection and in recent museum exhibitions.

With many significant milestones ahead for SFMOMA—including groundbreaking for its major expansion project and the launch of a dynamic slate of off-site programs during the construction phase for the new building, and the reopening of the new museum in early 2016—this year’s auction promises to be an especially celebratory occasion.

The event is made possible through the generous support of presenting sponsor The Bay Area Porsche Dealers and supporting sponsors AT&T, Deloitte, and Webcor Builders. In-kind sponsorship is provided by Blueprint Studios, Bonhams, Hafner Vineyard, The Painters Place Picture Framers, Ruinart, and Ship Art International.
