The Artwork

OMA’s Art Auction promises artwork that is lively—sometimes edgy, sometimes traditional, frequently unexpected—but never ordinary. This is an exceptional opportunity to collect pieces from prominent Southern California artists in price ranges that are approachable for collectors at any level.

As a preview to the auction on April 7, all of the artwork will be on view for the week before in an exhibition, open to the public for the price of museum admission. Click here for more information and a list of participating artists.
