Please join us on Saturday, February 27th for the Yale MFA Student Benefit Auction at Field Projects Gallery. This is a ONE-NIGHT ONLY Benefit Auction exhibition and art sale. With the purchase of a raffle ticket, you will be guaranteed a work of art by some of today’s up and coming artists from Yale’s MFA program alongside alongside faculty from the School of Art. Dibs for who gets to choose their work first will be given through a raffle-style system: 3 - 5 raffle tickets will be drawn every 5 - 10 minutes starting at 6pm.
