For Folk's Sake! Digital Auction

The American Folk Art Museum (AFAM), Lincoln Square’s only museum, is hosting a digital auction: For Folk’s Sake! Contemporary Artists x the American Folk Art Museum.

AFAM has carefully selected a range of professional artists who are inspired by or collect self-taught art, art brut, and historical folk art. Bid on sculptures, such as KAWS' SEEING, paintings like Kristen Schiele's Rose, photography, including William Wegman's Dog Leg, and more!  

Proceeds from this auction will be used to support innovative exhibitions and education programs, as well as ensure free access to its online resources, archives, and library and make up for significant lost revenue caused by the global pandemic. Bids must be placed before the auction closes on Thursday, October 22nd at 5:00pm. Click here to browse artwork and place a bid.

You can also make a general donation to AFAM here.
