Celebrate the power of art at the 46th Benefit Art Auction. At MAM, we believe art has enormous power—to ignite innovation, engage the next generation, transform perspectives, and inspire a lifetime love of collecting contemporary art.

Experience the energy and generosity of 80 locally and nationally renowned artists who donated new and vibrant works this year, including John Buck, Beth Lo, Steven Young Lee, and Wendy Red Star.

The benefit art auction provides critical support for MAM’s contemporary art exhibitions and educational programming. Your bids at the auction support the transformative work of artists and contemporary art in our community.

Our Presenting Sponsor, U.S. Bank, is proud to celebrate a decade of support for the art auction this year. Our Presenting Media Sponsor, the Missoula Independent, supports Free Expression // Free Admission at MAM. Noteworthy Paper and Press creates beautifully-designed letterpress invitations. The Missoula Wine Merchants Wine Wall presents an opportunity, for $25, to take home a fine bottle of a carefully selected wine valued at $25 or much higher. Slikati Photo + Video captures the dynamic energy of an elegant crowd gathered to bid, laugh, and cheer. This event, and the work of MAM, is made possible by more than 40 other businesses that provide in-kind and cash sponsorships to bring the power of art to our community.
