UNLV Fine Art and the Contemporary Art Center are pleased to announce The Auction, a benefit exhibition of art works by UNLV faculty, alumni, MFA students, and local artists. A semi-live auction will be held Friday, March 4, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in downtown Las Vegas. Proceeds will be used to support the development of MFA candidates through visits to museums, galleries, alternative spaces, and artist studios. The event provides critical funding to the development of the arts at UNLV and in Las Vegas.
“To have this benefit at CAC, which was founded by UNLV artists and faculty, is a reminder of how contemporary art is an established institution in Las Vegas,” says Melissa Petersen, CAC's Board president and administrator.
“Many faculty, alumni, current BFA and MFA students have graciously donated pieces that will be for sale for the duration of the show, with a semi-live auction on the night of our reception,” says Maureen Halligan, one of the UNLV MFA Candidates organizing the benefit. “It's been such a pleasure to work with so many individuals that are willing to support our program.”
