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 the excitement of both a live and a silent auction. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to support HCP exhibitions, educational initiatives, outreach programs, and the award-winning publication SPOT magazine.

This year's auction will be held Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at The Briar Club.
