Project 31: OCAD University Faculty Auction
One of the city's most accessible art collecting events, Project 31 is a live art auction offering up stunning paintings, photography, limited edition prints, sculpture, textiles and fibre, illustration, jewellery and digital media by OCAD University's talented faculty members, and a few specially invited guests.
Project 31 pairs the support of donating faculty members with specific areas of need at the university, such as program-specific scholarships, awards or bursaries for students, the university's library and Learning Zone, the Florence Off-Campus Studies Program, or investments of new equipment for specific programs. Faculty members choose which area of need they wish to support through the sale of their donated work.
The auction a great place for budding art collectors to score great buys, with works selling very affordably anywhere from a few hundred dollars to under $10,000. Through the auction, patrons are able to access work by OCAD U's award-winning faculty members — a pool of creative talent found nowhere else in Canada — while enriching the learning experience for the next generation of artists and designers.
