The Familiar and the New

As you may expect, this year brings inevitable changes to the Auction. Organizers have been “Zooming” through the past months, strategizing and planning for the most user-friendly, engaging and careful way to hold one of the Museum’s largest fundraising events.

2020’s Benefit Art Auction Donation Details

  • All donated pieces will continue to be part of an in-gallery Preview Exhibition offering potential bidders a chance to see and familiarize themselves with each item. 
  • Donations will simultaneously be found online through our new Benefit Art Auction platform – Bidsquare.  Our partners at Bidsquare have worked with over 100 top-tier auction houses and antique dealers to promote and sell original art through their virtual bidding site. Bidsquare’s many attractive features include the opportunity for donating artists to have their work seen by over 180,000 national and international bidders. With Bidsquare, global, targeted art buyers can now view all Attleboro Arts Museum Auction items.  Add this exposure to the Museum’s established base of bidders and our audience for art has substantially increased!      
  • Our customary, ticketed, in-gallery auction event will convert to two virtual bidding sessions with “free admission.” These include a live-streamed auction conducted by auctioneer Chris Barber of Skinner on Friday, November 6th at 7pm.  One “timed” auction (formerly known as the “silent” auction) will close the day after the live-streamed session concludes.
  • As in previous years, bidders will be able to place online advance bids for all auction items.
