Art Kala 2021 Auction Benefit

Kala Art Institute and Honorary Auction Chairs Jeremy Stone and Craig Nagasawa invite you to join us for Art Kala 2021, an exhibition, auction, and benefit to support Kala’s artistic, cultural, and educational programs.

Celebrating Kala’s 47th year, Art Kala 2021 brings together Kala’s creative community and features the inventive and meaningful art being made right here in the Bay Area. We are thrilled this year to honor Demetri Broxton, Jordan Ann Craig, and Carissa Potter as the 2021 recipients of Kala’s Master Artist Award.  The exhibition will include work by Kota Ezawa, Jim Melchert, Masako Miki, Kelly Ording, Steuart Pittman, Ron Moultrie Sanders, Seiko Tachibana, Tara Tucker, Ryan Whelan, Lena Wolff, Chelsea Wong, and many many more!

These special ticket holders will also receive a new print by Golbanou Moghaddas produced for the auction (limited edition of 30, first come first served).   In order to maintain social distancing, tickets will be for timed entry between 12-8pm — we will coordinate timing with you upon ticket purchase.
