2020 Annual Art Auction

Annual Art Auction

Since 1948, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston has shared the art of our time at no cost to visitors who come through our doors. It is through the amazing generosity of patrons and artists that we maintain and advance our mission. Every year a curated selection of artists and their galleries are asked to donate work for the benefit of the Museum through our Annual Art Auction. In turn, proceeds from the Annual Art Auction benefit CAMH’s exhibitions and educational programming.

Registration / Bidding

CAMH will once again utilize the Qtego online auction bidding platform, allowing you to place bids and potentially win lots from anywhere in the world! Bid from the comfort of your own home and let Qtego keep an eye on your interests for you. If someone bids on an item you were winning, you will receive a text message alert prompting you to bid again. Registering is easy, and it is all you need to begin bidding.
