BNSA (Big Names, Small Art) is a casual outdoor event that features silent auctions of over 200 small artworks (12 x 12 inches or less) with bidding on each starting at just $25, regardless of the work’s fair market value. BNSA has become a spirited art party with more than 1,000 guests vying to acquire works for their personal collections.

This energetic evening highlights both seasoned and emerging artists from our region, and proceeds from the sale of each artwork benefit the Crocker’s many educational programs for adults, children, teens, and their families.
