An Evening to Benefit Student Scholarships

Join us for a spirited auction and an evening of unparalleled creativity that could only happen at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Mingle with the Twin Cities creative community, take in the immersive art scene, nosh on appetizers and cocktails, and have fun bidding on spectacular art to add to your collection–all in support of student scholarships. 

For more than 130 years, MCAD has been a creative pillar in the community. Because of the generosity of past Auction attendees, 331 students have received scholarships, ensuring that the creative changemakers of tomorrow have access to a world-class education.

Proceeds benefit the Minneapolis College of Art and Design Scholarship Fund. 

I am unable to attend, but would like to support MCAD student scholarships.
