This event has ended.

The CalArts Art Benefit and Auction is a fundraising effort in which more than 80 important works of art donated by CalArts alumni, faculty and friends will be exhibited and sold this spring. This unprecedented initiative will fund the new John Baldessari Building and endow scholarships for students at the CalArts School of Art.

Through his generous and innovative teaching and his exceptional art practice, John Baldessari, a Chouinard alumnus and former CalArts faculty member, has influenced thousands of young artists and has earned a prominent place in the history of contemporary art. The Baldessari Building is the Institute’s newest educational facility featuring exhibition and instructional space as well as 16 artists’ studios. Reducing student debt is one of the Institute’s highest priorities, and the endowment created from proceeds from the auction and sales will allow more CalArts students to launch their creative careers without the burden of enormous debt.

All donated works are available for viewing on Artsy (https://artsy.net/feature/calarts-sale)
