Collectors’ Night at Washington Project For The Arts (Jun 3; Auction on Artsy Jun 3-17, 2022)

Collectors’ Night 2022 is our eagerly anticipated annual benefit, happening on Friday, June 3—in-person for the first time in three years. Because it has been a while since we last physically gathered, we’re doing things a little differently: 100–150 artists and patrons will sit down for an elegant, family-style, dinner (catered by Susan Gage). Dinner will be followed by a larger, more raucous party with music and dancing (powered by DJ Geena Marie). The evening’s theme—Your Presence is the Best Art—is inspired by the artist James Lee Byars (1932–1997) and celebrates our return to gathering together.

Collectors’ Night earned its name because of the extraordinary opportunity it offers guests to purchase museum-quality artwork by phenomenal artists. Guests will be treated to an in-person viewing of artworks that will be auctioned virtually on Artsy, June 3–17. Ticket and auction purchases will directly support participating artists and WPA’s artist-organized programming.
