Big Six Art Auction Online Fundraiser

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce the Big Six Art Auction, DAM’s first-ever online fundraiser, Friday, November 27 – Saturday, December 12, 2020.

In 2014, DAM created a new tradition, an annual art auction gala held at iconic Detroit locations. The premise was simple. We selected artists whose work we admired, and we created a festive fundraising event around them. This year, against challenging circumstances, DAM presents the Big Six Art Auction, an online event featuring original work from—you guessed it—six of our featured artists, including Anita Bates, Birgit Huttemann-Holz, Ava East, Robert Sestok, April Anue, and Phil Simpson. Bid online between November 27 and December 12, and visit the gallery during that same time to see the works displayed at DAM’s Art for the Holidays event. Reserve your tickets now, and you will receive the auction site link via email on November 27th.
