With close to 700 people in attendance at the 9th Annual Art Auction, the Bemis Center raised over $440,000 with the support of artists from all over the world. All proceeds from the Annual Art Auction go directly to the Bemis Center's Sustaining Fund; a fund established to support exceptional talent and creativity through our international artist-in-residence program.

Thank you to the 233 artists who made our biggest fundraiser of the year the most successful fundraiser of the year. We'd also like to extend special thanks to all of our generous Auction sponsors, artists and patrons who all made this the most successful Art Auction in the Bemis Center's history.
