Headlands Center for the Arts
Headlands Center for the Arts’ Annual Benefit Art Auction is one of the premier events in the Bay Area each year, welcoming over 500 attendees to Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion for a festive evening of artist installations and performances, a silent auction of over 70 museum-quality artworks and experiences, a live auction, and a pop-up shop with unique artist-driven merchandise.

Returning to the Festival Pavilion after a three year hiatus, the 2023 Benefit Art Auction raised $800,000, with just under $150,000 going directly back to donating Auction artists. The evening featured performances by Jazz musician Jeff Parker and visual artists Erika Chong Shuch and Josh Short, and remarks by artists Lava Thomas and Arleene Correa Valencia.
