Building on the success of last year’s virtual auction, Art Auction Season 2021 will feature the same lively events in a new hybrid virtual and in-person format. Support raised from this year’s Art Auction Season is critical for the Crocker and for the thousands of children, families, and adults the Museum serves every year. Your generous support is needed now more than ever, so remember to bid high and bid often!
