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 175 established and emerging Bay Area artists, including plenty of shining and rising stars! As a reprise of last year’s success, we’re planning to have the artwork installed in Root Division’s gallery, a continuation of online bidding, and a suite of in-person events. Our Main Event will feature both a silent and a live auction (led by esteemed Bonhams Auctioneer Aaron Bastian). Check out the options to join the fun and #SupportRD below!

Proceeds directly support 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.

You can view the artwork in our Auction 2023 Digital Catalog and can bid / BUY NOW online today!
