ArtWorks Detroit, the premier charity art auction that benefits Matrix Human Services, will take place from Friday, October 13, 2023. Bidding will take place virtually, but the collection can be viewed in person at Collected Detroit. We have two exciting experiences planned to check out this year’s collection in person.
First up, we are kicking off the festivities with an invite-only private Preview Party at Collected Detroit on Friday, October 13, 2023 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Guests will enjoy an exclusive viewing of this year’s collection while enjoying complimentary cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres.
In the following days, Collected Detroit will be open for previews. Refreshments will not be offered during this experience. More information to come.
We are thrilled to showcase our collection of local and nationally sourced masterpieces from the talented artists in person and online this year. We will provide more information when it is available to view on the ClickBid auction site, which has powered the past 3 ArtWorks Detroit auctions.
ArtWorks Detroit has historically been one of Matrix Human Services’ most profitable fundraising events and, with your help, we can continue that success in the event’s 28th year!
Proceeds from ArtWorks Detroit power critical services and programs designed to close the needs gap for underserved Detroiters. These resources provide a hand up NOT a hand out, allowing beneficiaries to rise to self-sufficiency.
Your support is vital to us continuing this work!
