The Art Auction Exhibition, which runs from September 24 to October 22, will feature works by Bay Area-based, national and international artists. The selection of work in the exhibition reflects the ICA’s continued commitment to including nationally and internationally recognized artists in its exhibition program. Held in a sophisticated gallery setting with a professional auctioneer, Silent and Live Auction guests actively bid on a wide range of work including paintings, photography, works on paper, sculpture, and mixed media pieces by nearly 200 artists.“There are nearly 200 works by local, regional and national contemporary artists in every media under the sun. With such a wide variety, our visitors can see what artists are making and thinking about right now. It’s a finger on the pulse of the current art scene in the Bay Area and beyond and there is literally something for everyone.” states ICA Executive Director Cathy Kimball.
