Print Auction

Elliott Erwitt

Each year in February, HCP holds an annual print auction where artists, galleries, and collectors from all over the world contribute premier photographic art that is auctioned to benefit HCP’s operating fund. It is an elegant evening of cocktails, dinner, and auction. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to support HCP exhibitions, educational initiatives, Access and Community Education programs, and the award winning publication spot magazine.

This year's print auction will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at The Briar Club with auctioneer Sarah Kreuger, Head of Department: Photographs at Phillips.
