Cleveland Arts Prize Art Auction & ‘60s Bash

Shop Here (neon), a sign for the former Tremont General Store, created and donated to the Cleveland Arts Prize auction by Jeff Chiplis.

Someone said, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” So, what happens when it’s one person’s art? I’ve been collecting art since the 1980’s. Sometimes I rotate work, but too often I take down one piece and store it while I showcase another. Basically, I keep running out of wall!

Over the years I have put together a personal collection that I love. They are each treasures, if only because someone created them. So what are they doing in storage? Isn’t art meant to be seen? Appreciated? Enjoyed? Shared?

I know that many collectors are like me and have downsized from a Roman Catholic Church. No really… some of the work I have stored hasn’t seen the light of day in years. So I thought, hell… let’s donate it!

On Thursday, May 21, 2020, Cleveland Arts Prize will host a Sixties Bash & Art Auction at the Transformer Station, located at 1460 W29, to celebrate CAP’s 60th Anniversary. Donate your forgotten art to CAP’s Art Auction and receive a tax deduction for its appraised value.  A win, win & win! Your donated art breathes new life in another’s home, you get tax credit, and Cleveland Arts Prize benefits from your generosity.

Additionally, on the Saturday prior to this event, we’ll be hosting a Flea Market in the Transformer Station parking lot.
