Please join the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit as we celebrate another tremendous year of acclaimed exhibitions and expansive educational programs. The 2016 Gala + Art Auction will feature MOCAD’s brand of dynamic live entertainment, craft cocktails by our own Café 78, and a sophisticated dinner menu from Cutting Edge Cuisine.

The 2016 Art Auction, with work selected by MOCAD's Susanne Feld Hilberry Senior Curator at Large Jens Hoffmann and Executive Director Elysia Borowy-Reeder, will continue its tradition of offering exceptional pieces by some of today's most iconic and progressive international artists.
