Proceeds from The Auction support student scholarships

Minneapolis, MN—May 3, 2018—The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) invites the public to The Auction at MCAD, featuring more than 60 pieces of exceptional quality artwork by distinguished alumni, friends, and faculty, with proceeds supporting the MCAD Scholarship Fund.

The Auction at MCAD is an exhilarating art party that provides a unique mix of emerging talent, provocative creativity, and unbridled enthusiasm that can only happen at an art school! Glen Fladebo of Fladebo Auctions will lead the live auction activities along with nationally recognized emcee, Christopher Hermann. DJ Sarah White rounds out the evening spinning tunes to set the mood for a lively and hip art evening.

Bid. Buy. Collect. Or just come to have a good time. Either way, guests are directly supporting the next generation of artists, designers, and entrepreneurs who fuel the creative economy of our city and state. Since 2013, The Auction at MCAD has raised more than $700,000 in scholarship funds for MCAD students. Community support propels the next generation of creative talent.

MCAD SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

Scholarships open doors for young people and help them launch their careers in the creative economy. Proceeds from The Auction support the MCAD Scholarship Fund. More than 95% of MCAD students receive some sort of financial aid; it is the difference between realized ambition and deferred dreams. This year, MCAD awarded nearly a million dollars in scholarships to aspiring artists and designers. The MCAD Scholarship Fund allows the community to actively support creativity and innovation.
