MarinMOCA’s ArtFwd Auction Raises Support for Museum, Honors 40th Anniversary

The culminating event for MarinMOCA’s annual benefit art auction, ArtFwd, took place on September 30 in an intimate outdoor setting on the museum grounds. Guests enjoyed dinner fare and music by The Bossa Nova Duo.

The event, which also served as the museum’s 40th anniversary celebration, enabled 170 guests to bid on a curated selection of artworks by known artists such as Bruce Conner, Isabella Kirkland, David Maisel and Zio Ziegler — bringing in $145,000 in support.

Guests were also welcomed by MarinMOCA’s new executive director, Jodi Roberts. 

MarinMOCA is a vibrant cultural destination dedicated to championing the development of artists at all stages of their careers. It operates through exhibitions, educational and interpretive programs, and the production of new works, all of which are intended to reflect, engage, and inspire a diverse Bay Area community while expanding the public’s appreciation of the power of contemporary art.
