Now in its 37th year, the WPA Auction Gala is one of DC's most highly anticipated art events. The evening includes cocktails, dinner, dessert, a silent auction of more than 200 artworks, and a DJ-fueled dance party. It is the primary way the WPA raises funds for its artist-driven exhibitions, programs, and projects, and sales are split 50-50 with the artists. The event this year will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Uline Arena.
This year WPA invited a national art committee of six artists, collectors, and curators to help identify the artists whose work would be presented in the silent auction. We are grateful for their expertise.
