Collectors’ Night 2024 will take place on Saturday, May 4th in downtown Washington, DC, and we can’t wait!

For 44 years, WPA’s art auction gala (called Collectors’ Night) has been a staple of the DC art scene. Collectors’ Night is not only an opportunity to celebrate with our community, but also provides essential support for the powerful, artist-driven contemporary art programs that WPA produces right here in DC. Proceeds from the auction directly benefit the participating artists and WPA, as all sales are split 50-50.

The gala begins with an intimate VIP cocktail reception for sponsors and host committee, followed by a dinner and an artist performance. The evening ends with a lively after-party, featuring music, dancing, and plenty of art-viewing! More than 100 artworks by the most exciting artists working in the region today will be on display and available for purchase online. Many of the participating artists were recommended to WPA by curators, arts professionals, and other artists, as well as sourced through our open call.

The online auction will be powered by Artsy, an international arts sales platform that averages more than 2,000,000 visitors per month.
