Auction Description

For over 100 years, the Crocker Art Museum has served visitors to and residents of Sacramento, CA as the only accredited art museum in the region. In addition to featuring the world’s foremost display of California art and world-renowned holdings of European master drawing and international ceramics, we offer a diverse spectrum of exhibitions, events, and programs. We believe in the transformative power of art, and our activities are designed to engage, support, and inspire.

This annual event attracts art patrons, community leaders, and philanthropists from throughout the region to support artists and acquire great works of art, many of which are created by artists in the Museum’s permanent collection.
