We are happy to announce the Magnificent 7 Art Auction, the seventh annual fundraiser to support our mission. We greatly appreciate your support for this evolving Detroit Artists Market tradition.  Please join us on Saturday, June 18, 7-10 p.m., at the Detroit Design Center Gallery in Midtown, 4225 Third Avenue.

DAM’s annual fundraising gala revolves around a special art exhibition that honors our history of supporting artists at different stages of their careers. Seven artists will create original works of art for a one-night exhibition and art auction, hosted by Elliot Broom, VP of Operations at the DIA. All proceeds benefit the artists and DAM. This year’s featured artists include Walter Bailey, Judy Bowman, Cailyn Dawson, Laurel Dugan, Ian Matchett, Miroslawa Sztuczka, and Shirley Woodson. The evening also includes 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 Design Center Gallery, where brothers Erik and Israel Nordin showcase their unique sculptures made of glass, metal, wood and mixed media. Please join us for an evening of art, celebration, and good company.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. Sponsors committed before May 6, 2022 will be included on the Magnificent Seven Art Auction invitations, which are mailed to more than 4,000 DAM supporters and e-mailed to 3,000 addresses.
