Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1

October 03, 2015 | 6:59 PM – 10:59 PM

The Detroit Artists Market is pleased to announce the Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1, a first-of-a-kind fundraiser to support our mission. Join us on Saturday, October 3, 7-11 p.m. at the historic Ladder Company #12 fire station in Corktown.

Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1 revolves around a special art exhibition that honors DAM’s history of supporting artists at different stages of their careers. We have paired together some of Detroit’s most regarded established artists with some of its most talented emerging artists. Teams of two will combine aesthetics and collaborate to create original works of art for a one-night exhibition. We are honored to have WDIV news anchor Devin Scillian as our guest auctioneer. Mr Scillian will auction off works of art, and the proceeds will benefit the artists, in addition to supporting DAM.

The Ladder 12 Art Auction makes creative use of this unique location by splitting the night’s entertainment between a festive outdoor space and the interior of a classic ladder company, where for more than 70 years Detroit firefighters were at the ready. The event will include a strolling supper with a selection of hors-d’oeuvres and signature cocktails, live music, and a silent auction featuring products and services from Detroit-area organizations.

• Original works of art
• Creative food samplings
• Signature cocktails and wine by Our Detroit Vodka and Motor City Brewing Works
• Live and silent bidding on works of art
• Music by Marion Hayden and Alvin Waddles
