25th Anniversary Auction & Art Sale

For the past 25 years, Artpace has welcomed over 260 groundbreaking artists to live, work, and exhibit in its space. The International Artist-in-Residence program’s 25th anniversary coincides with the approaching sunset of a 20-year funding commitment from Artpace founder, artist, collector, and philanthropist Linda Pace, who envisioned a place where artists would be given the freedom to experiment and express their own voice.
