2016 Faculty & Alumni Fine Art Auction Set for Nov. 12

There’s no better way to enhance your life than with beautiful and thought-provoking art. You will find works perfectly suited to both home and workplace at the 2016 Academy of Art University Faculty + Alumni Fine Art Auction, Nov. 12 at The Cannery in San Francisco.

Sponsored by the Academy of Art University Foundation, the event supports the university’s Fine Art Student Scholarship Fund. The fund awards scholarships to the top students of the university’s fine arts school at the annual Spring Show in a variety of categories, including painting, sculpture, printmaking and jewelry. Last year, the auction raised $165,000 for the scholarship fund on behalf of the School of Fine Art.

Half of the proceeds from each sale at the auction benefit students via the scholarship fund; the rest go directly to the artists. And 50 percent of your purchase is tax deductible.

Academy President Elisa Stephens sums up the event this way: “I would like to personally thank Dr. Craig Nelson, executive director, School of Fine Art—Painting, for spearheading this auction 21 years ago, and for nurturing its growth beyond Academy of Art University’s established communities. I also extend my appreciation to all faculty and alumni who energetically support this endeavor by graciously providing the artworks that drive this nonprofit fund-raising auction.

“Thank you for participating, and we hope you enjoy an evening of lively auctioning, complete with music, fine food and good friends.”
