ART AUCTION 2022


Thursday, October 20, 2022

Host: 6 PM | VIP: 6:30 PM | Event 7-9 PM

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 100 established and emerging Bay Area artists, including plenty of shining and rising stars! As you can imagine, we are adjusting with the times. We’re planning to have the artwork installed in Root Division’s gallery and a suite of in-person events.

Rather catch the action remotely? We’ve got you covered with a continuation of online bidding and a live stream of the Live Auction! Check out the options to join the fun and #SupportRD below!

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.
