ocad mystery art sale 2009

OCAD Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale Contest

The annual Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale at the Ontario College of Art & Design always represents a great opportunity to buy art incredibly low prices. When you throw in an element of mystery, by learning the identity of the artist only after purchasing the art, it can be pretty fun as well.

The 2009 Whodunit? Sale is just around the corner. From November 18th to 20th, prospective buyers will be able to preview this year's vast collection of lovely, donated 5.5x7.5 works, each created by a mystery artist (some famous and others aiming to be) and available for purchase for just $75 on a first-come-first-served basis on November 21st. Only after the works are sold will the artists be revealed.

blogTO has prize vouchers to give away to three lucky readers.
