Over the Top Friday Night: Free entry, early bidding, no cupcakes.

The Friday night opening of MAWA's Over the Top Art Auction is a chance to see all of the art and start your bidding in a relaxed environment. Entry is free! If you'd like to bid on some artworks, tickets are available for $10. Advance tickets are also available online.

You don't have to be present at the close of the auction on Sunday, April 7 to be a successful bidder!

Bidders who bid high on Friday and Saturday often get the art they bid on. MAWA also has volunteer proxy bidders who can make bids for you. Talk to a volunteer at the front desk on Friday or Saturday or email [email protected]. We’ll take your bidder number, the title of the artwork(s) you want to bid on and the maximum amount you are willing to bid and give that information to a proxy bidder who will make bids for you on Sunday as the auction closes.

Successful bidders will be notified Wednesday, April 10 if they are not present for the close of the auction on Sunday.
