On Sunday, we ran a story on Habitat for Humanity of Washington D.C.’s first Art for Humanity auction, a contemporary art auction to raise funds for the local nonprofit. Artnet Auctions, an Internet auction site for the international art market, opened up the fundraiser to more than 16,000 bidders from around the world and started the fundraiser online.
The story went to print before the online auction ended. Only 17 of the now 55 donated works sold online, meaning there’s a lot left to bid on during the live auction at Woolly Mammoth Theatre on Thursday. Some of the works that are still up for grabs are shown here. Visit artforhumanitydc.com for more information on the event and the artists involved.
