Enjoy a casual, celebratory evening while bidding on dozens of mini masterpieces in a series of action-packed silent auctions. Each small work of art up for bid measures 12 x 12 inches or less, great for that space in your home or office. With bids starting at just $25, it’s a perfect way to start or add to your own personal art collection, or shop for a gift for your favorite art lover.

This energetic evening highlights both seasoned and emerging artists from our region, and also features music and entertainment, art demonstrations, locally sourced food, and craft cocktails. But most importantly, proceeds from the sale of each artwork benefit the Crocker’s many educational programs for adults, children, teens, and their families. Advance registration is recommended.

Parking at the Crocker can be impacted during large events. To ensure an easy parking experience during your visit, we suggest using street parking (metered) on 3rd Street, Front Street, or N Street to avoid city of Sacramento parking lot congestion. Smartphone users can also download the ParkMobile app to find and pay for parking. The Museum is also easily accessible by Sacramento Regional Transit’s Light Rail. Stops at 8th & O streets and at 8th & K streets are the closest.
