We are thrilled to announce MoAD’s third Benefit Art Auction. This event supports MoAD's vital mission to showcase contemporary art from the African Diaspora, in the Bay Area and around the globe. Organized in partnership with Artsy, the auction will be held online May 16th through May 30, 2024. 

This year, we seek to unite artists and collectors in a shared mission to showcase and support the vibrant art of the African Diaspora. By focusing on established and emerging artists and their distinct narratives, MoAD aims to foster and connect a global community of art enthusiasts. This event promises not only to highlight the diverse perspectives within the diaspora but also to reinforce MoAD's commitment to celebrating and uplifting Black art and artists worldwide. Join us in building connections and expanding horizons, as we continue to support and elevate the unique voices of the African Diaspora through art.

Proceeds from the auction will directly support MoAD’s work to uplift Black art and artists through world-class exhibitions and dynamic educational programs. Together we are playing a pivotal role in supporting the larger Black-arts ecosystems. 

Join us to celebrate and support artists of the African Diaspora. Mark your calendars, bidding opens on May 16, 2024!
