At 7 p.m. this Friday, Public Space One invites the public to an art auction exhibition that highlights the facility’s past, as well as what the future might have in store.
A press release sent out by PS1 Director John Engelbrecht sums up the exhibit perfectly:
“This is a dual-purpose show: at once a showcase of the excellent artists we have had the pleasure to work with in the past as well as a return of our annual art auction (these participating past artists have submitted a work as an offering for the future of the space). The show will feature a plethora of work available to supporters in the form of a sealed-bid, silent auction as well as archives, documentation, and a few surprises. This is a great opportunity to get affordable artwork, learn about, and support a great institution simultaneously.
The artwork in the exhibition was donated as a fundraiser for the PS1 gallery. Sealed bidding will end online and in the gallery at 8:30 pm on Saturday, September 12th. Winning bidders will be contacted and announced in the following week. Participants do not need to be present to win. All proceeds go towards PS1 and the future of our arts programming.”
All works up for auction can be bid on online. So if you can’t make it out in person, be sure to support your artistic community, Iowa City!
