Off the Wall: 30th Anniversary Art Auction and Gala

Off the Wall: 30th Anniversary Art Auction and Gala
Dates: Saturday, Jun 1, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

You are cordially invited to join us at the Armory to celebrate 30 years of transforming lives through the power of art. Bid on over 60 works by established and emerging artists as you enjoy cocktails, fine wines, and our signature "Strolling Supper" throughout the evening. This year's special musical guests are Queertet, Los Angeles' premiere LGBTQ string ensemble, who will perform classical compositions with a contemporary twist.

All Off the Wall ticket sales and auction proceeds directly support the Armory's exhibitions, education, and community programs. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to preview auction items and learn more about the artists who have generously donated their work in support of the Armory's mission.
