Proceeds benefit Light Work and champion our mission of supporting emerging and under-represented artists working in photography through residencies, publications, exhibitions, educational programming, and a community-access digital lab facility. Hung gallery style or as a singular statement piece, every image is a wonderful addition to any collection. 

To support the important work of multiple museums, institutions, and non-profit organizations, Artsy is honored to host a curated benefit auction which aims to unite the art world and art industry at large during this difficult time. Art Keeps Nonprofits Going: Benefit Auction 2021 is a rare opportunity to support the fundraising efforts of some of the art industry’s top institutions and artists through this fantastic collection of works.

“I’m proud of the Artsy team for their exhaustive efforts to support our partners and their artists through this crisis,” says the firm’s chief executive, Mike Steib. “We will do everything we can to ensure that art keeps going through this crisis and is available to everyone in the world.”

The physical art world is indefinitely on pause, museums and galleries have closed, exhibitions have canceled, and auctions and fairs have been postponed. Still, in times of crisis, art keeps us connected across time and place. Art keeps going, and it keeps us going.
