Bemis Benefit Art Auction 2015

Location: 724 South 12th Street
Description: The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts proudly presents the Bemis Benefit Art Auction on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 6:00pm. We’re pleased to again unite local and national artists and galleries along with our art supporters for Omaha’s premier celebration of contemporary art.

The Bemis Benefit Art Auction highlights the generosity and diversity that characterize contemporary art. By celebrating these values, the auction is an ideal opportunity for the public to support creativity in a tangible way. Sales and donations are reinvested back into the Bemis Center, to provide financial and practical support to artists year round.

This year's festivities will include a silent and live auction with 250 works of art from top artists, juried by Ellina Kevorkian, artistic director for residency programs, Alex Priest, exhibition manager, and Larry Roots, Modern Arts Midtown gallery director.
