29th Annual Benefit Art Auction: Online & In the Galleries!

Online auction in conjunction with combined online and in-person exhibition

Join us in collecting the art of coastal Marin and more. Last year’s online auction was such a success that we’re doing it again.

Featuring a range of artwork by 30 Marin artists and exciting offers and experiences, there is something for everyone, all supporting art, history, culture, and community!

The annual benefit art auction is the museum’s most important fundraiser of the year and one of West Marin’s most highly regarded happenings.

Bidding takes place entirely online this year and begins August 21, the day the auction exhibition opens in the galleries and online and ends online at 8 PM PT, Sunday, September 12.

We know you love to gather as part of this beloved event, so we’ve planned two parties – a free artists’ reception and open house at the museum (Sat., Aug. 28, 5 pm), followed by a ticketed cocktail fundraiser at a private home the night before the online bidding closes (Sat., Sep. 11, 4 pm)!

One of the most important parts of the auction is the Paddle Raise, where we invite you to give in support of Art, History, Culture, and Community so that we may continue to provide inspiration and wonder free for all!

New this year is an Auction Shop featuring designs by auction artists, including a tote with the artwork by Chris Whitefield! and silk scarves made in Italy for Tessuto Editions by auction artists Kristin Farr, Kelly Ording, Jenny Sharaf, Clare Rojas, Lena Wolff, & Leigh Wells.

And to thank you for your support, we’re giving back! Register for free to be included in the Week of Giving Daily Drawing (begins Mon., Sep. 6) to receive prizes from local businesses and makers during the Week of Giving leading up to the close of the online auction!

Your generosity supports both the Bolinas Museum and local artists!
