Hosted by MOCAD’s Board of Directors, the Annual Gala + Benefit Art Auction raises funds to support the mission of the Museum’s Department of Education and Public Programs and Exhibitions Department. Our programs and exhibitions offer compelling opportunities to explore, challenge, discuss, and reflect on the ideas raised by both the art and artists on view at MOCAD and in the larger world of contemporary art and culture. We are also proud to champion and provide unique arts education opportunities to Detroit’s youth.

Your Gala ticket purchase provides crucial support for MOCAD’s initiatives and operations. Learn more about MOCAD’s impact by clicking here, or viewing this short video on MOCAD’s Teen Council. We are grateful to all who help us reach our goals!
