BAM took a trip to downtown Manhattan on Monday for the closing party of the 10th annual BAM Art Auction.
The auction was held at the Whitebox Art Center in the Bowery, and featured the work of 90 artists, including such well-known names as Richard Serra, Alex Katz, Dustin Yellin, and Deborah Kass; some lesser known emerging ones, like Brie Ruaz and Rachel Beach; and at least one you recognize but didn’t know created visual art—Moby.
The auction was open online from May 3rd to the 5th but all work was onsite Monday as art lovers from all over wandered through the gallery in admiration.
Bidding closed at 10:00 PM, and capped a hugely successful event, with BAM raising over $200,000.
