Art Auction 2019


Auction 2019 | Thursday, October 24

Host: 6 PM | VIP: 6 PM | Event 7-9 PM

Live Auction beings at 8 pm. Silent Auction begins to close directly after the end of the Live Auction.


Collect art, support arts education, and be inspired by artists at
Root Division’s largest annual fundraising event!

We are proud to feature an eclectic mix of high quality artwork from over 150 established and emerging Bay Area artists, including plenty of shining and rising stars! Proceeds directly benefit local artists, free art classes for Bay Area youth, and the continued success of Root Division’s unique model for keeping artists working at the heart of San Francisco.

Root Division’s Art Auction 2019 is an amazing opportunity to support a local non-profit arts organization in San Francisco. Money raised from this event enables us to support and train artists and to teach over 1,000 students who otherwise would not receive arts education.

We cannot do this without your support!
