Gala Auction

Since 1948 the 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 Gala and Art Auction. In turn, proceeds from the Annual Gala and Art Auction benefit CAMH’s exhibitions and educational programming.

Something New

Last year, CAMH announced a new auction bidding platform to allow interested collectors to place bids and potentially win lots from anywhere in the world! Registering is easy and it is all you need to begin bidding.

No more paper bidding! Now you can enjoy the evening, chat with a friend, or dance the night away while Qtego keeps an eye on your interests for you. If someone bids on an item you were winning, you will receive a text message prompting you to bid again.
