We are happy to announce the Detroit Club Art Auction: DAM Gala 5, the fifth annual fundraiser to support our mission. We greatly appreciate your support for this wonderful Detroit Artists Market tradition. We hope that you can join us on Saturday, November 2, 2019, 7-10 p.m., at the Detroit Club.

DAM’s annual fundraising gala revolves around a special art exhibition that honors our history of supporting artists at different career stages. Ten artists will create original works of art for a one-night exhibition and art auction hosted by Elliott Broom, Vice President of Operations at the DIA. This year’s featured artists include Boisali Biswas, Kristen Canda, Meighen Jackson, Rick Vian, Priscilla Phifer, Tom Phardel, Caroline Del Giudice, Dorothy Jett-Carter, and Armageddon Beachparty. The evening also features live music, a strolling supper, and a silent auction featuring additional artwork and products from notable Detroit establishments.

We are honored to host this year’s art auction at the Detroit Club, the gorgeous Romanesque Revival-style building created in 1892 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. The Club recently underwent an amazing two-year renovation. New owners Emre and Lynn Uralli have put millions of dollars into updating the four-story building at 712 Cass Ave., refurnishing its venerable dining and reception rooms and adding new lounge areas and amenities, including a spa and whirlpool floor and 10 overnight guest suites. Please join us for an evening of art, celebration, and honoring Detroit’s rich history.

Tickets can be purchased at our EventBrite page, over the phone (313.832.8540), or in person at the gallery.
