California Cool Art Auction
Don’t miss the opportunity to join us on March 5th as Laguna Art Museum celebrates 40 years of connecting artists, collectors, and community at the California Cool Art Auction – our most important fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from this event keep the museum vibrant and support future California-focused exhibitions and programs.
Guests will enjoy delicious bites, a hosted bar, and lively entertainment in our creative and unique setting. More than 100 prominent California artists’ works displayed throughout the museum will be available for purchase via silent and live auction led by Aaron Bastian of Bonhams.
All bidding will take place with the help of our online auction partner Artsy. So, even if you cannot be with us in person, you can still be part of the action and support the museum by bidding in real time! Register now on Artsy to preview this year’s selection of invited artists. Bidding begins on February 5th and ends on March 5th.
