Work by Michele BonDurant.

DAYTON, OH.- The Contemporary Dayton’s 26th Annual Art Auction will take on a different look this year as a virtual event that will bring the same excitement and fun with online bidding. This no-cost event will be held August 26–30, 2020 with a live auction livestream that begins promptly at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 29, 2020. In recognition of the interconnectedness of art and activism, The Co will donate 10% of proceeds raised from the art auction to The RubiGirls Scholarship Fund for LGBTQ students and straight allies as well as the YWCA Dayton’s Stand Against Racism Campaign 2020, both of which are working on the frontlines of social justice and anti-oppression.

The 2020 Online Art Auction & Benefit is The Co’s signature fundraising event and the only auction in the region dedicated exclusively to visual art. Proceeds will provide critical funding to The Co in support of programs for artists and the public that build understanding of and appreciation for the role of art in today’s society. One-hundred and twelve works of art including paintings, photographs, prints, jewelry and sculpture in ceramic, wood, glass, and bronze created by the talented array of artists from in and around the Miami Valley will be available for online bidding and the live auction livestream. The Auction offers something for everyone with prices starting at $60.

“While we will miss the liveliness of typical auction party, we are thankful to be hosting virtually and keeping our community members safe during this time,” said Eva Buttacavoli, Executive Director of The Co. “The Contemporary Dayton Art Auction is one way in which we showcase, promote and celebrate the vast talent of our region’s numerous artists. This much-anticipated event draws tastemakers, young professionals, community leaders, and philanthropic donors who truly believe art elevates our daily lives.”

Artists represented in the 2020 Art Auction include some of the region’s most notable, including Dave Ackels, John Emery, Katherine Kadish, Mychaelyn Michalec, Andy Snow, Terry Welker, and many more.
