You are cordially invited to participate in the one and only live auction of artistic experience to be held in Washington! Support DC’s most alternative and cutting edge arts organization not by buying art, but by experiencing it, at DCAC’s 2019 Experience Auction. This event brings together 200 collectors, entrepreneurs, and professionals to bid on a series of one-of-a-kind experiences, created for the occasion by some of DC’s most talented tastemakers and creative types. The Experience Auction will unfold on Thursday, May 16, from 6:30-9:30 PM in the Club and Ballroom of the historic Kennedy-Warren building. There will be great music, hors d’oeuvres, live performances, a silent and live auction and a cash bar. Valet Parking will be available.

The Experience Auction provides a unique opportunity for participants to bid on art experiences rather than static works of art. Musicians, filmmakers, artists, actors, chefs, and a host of other donors have created an array of original and unique creative experiences. Interested in touring behind the scenes at one of Washington’s best known theaters? What about bringing home an award-winning vocalist to entertain your friends? How about collaborating on new artwork with a team of guerrilla painters? All these experiences and more will be available at this exciting event.

What kinds of experiences are up for bid?:
-Exclusive live music performances for the bidder and a small group of friends
-Improvised drama created with the collaboration of the bidder and other participants
-Tour historic locations in and around Adams Morgan
-Artwork created with or commissioned by the winning bidder
