In 2022, we worked with many organizations dedicated to the arts, culture and humanity. In addition to sold lots, we also provided sponsorship and donated our space, and our talented auctioneers offered their time and skill for important causes and valued organizations across the globe.

Some of the organizations we partnered with include:

Smithsonian Women's Committee

James Renwick Alliance

The Trevor Project

Grounds for Sculpture

The Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation

The Art Institute of Chicago

Plus, we made several improvements to our websites, including a global search feature!
