A long-running and popular event, the WADC Miniature Art Auction has sold works of art in past years from internationally-famous designers, illustrators and photographers, including Charles Spencer Anderson, Milton Glaser, Michael Osborne, Rick Tharp, Gerald Bybee, Louise Fili, Kit Hinrichs, R.J. Muna, Jane Sperry Eisenstat, David Lance Goines and Ward Schumaker.

For the art lover, this is a great opportunity to meet the artists and acquire one of these creative gems. Together, the artists and buyers will be proud to know that their purchases benefit creative students in the Bay Area.

Michael Osborne, San Francisco Creative Director and founder of JoeysCorner.org had this to share: "The WADC Miniature Art Auction has always been one of my favorite design organization events over the years. And, drink some wine and bid wildly on some very cool artwork! One wall in my house is covered with these little treasures."

"The WADC Miniature Art Auction is a chance for our best designers, photographers and illustrators to explore their pure creative passions without being watered down by outside influences," explains WADC Miniature Art Auction Chair Eric Gouldsberry. "The auction is also a great way for them to contribute to a worthwhile cause in a truly wonderful environment."
