AH2020 Goes Virtual
For thirteen years, Djerassi Resident Artists Program has welcomed art lovers, enthusiasts, and donors to an intimate and luxurious celebration of art and sky. 150 guests enjoy breathtaking views, gourmet dinner, exceptional wines, and experience first-hand the majestic land that has inspired Djerassi Program alumni for over forty years. However, due to the limitations of large gatherings this year, our annual fundraiser will be broadcast online to art lovers everywhere.
In true Djerassi Program fashion, we have taken this challenge to heart, calling upon the incredible talents of our beloved alumni, community, and staff. It is our pleasure to open our doors to the world and offer you an intimate look inside our famed Program, from the comfort and safety of your own home.
How To Participate
Virtual events are still very new to many of us, but luckily our broadcast event is as simple as watching YouTube. To participate in the virtual Artful Harvest, you first need to purchase a ticket using the links provided on this page. With that purchase, you have the option of enrolling in our Silent Auction as well as to receive text message updates and prompts- we recommend this!
All pre-registered guests will receive a welcome email on October 11 with links to view the broadcast and to participate in the auction. Please also keep an eye on our website, social media, and your inbox for updates.
On October 18 you will receive an event program ahead of time detailing the virtual event experience as well as the Silent Auction. We encourage you to be ready at 5:00 pm PDT with your dinner, your drink, and to raise a glass and enjoy the show from your laptop, computer, or streaming to your big screen TV.
About the Online Auction
The Artful Harvest Silent Auction has always been an exciting way for the Djerassi Program to share exceptional artworks by alumni. Collectors and enthusiasts alike have helped make our Silent Auction a cornerstone of the event fundraising efforts to benefit the Program.
We are thrilled to be able to continue to offer you some incredible works of art this year through the online auction platform ClickBid. When you purchase your ticket to Artful Harvest, you will have the option to save your credit card for the auction- we recommend this!
Starting on October 11 you will be able to access our auction and begin the bidding process. The conclusion of the auction will happen at the virtual event on October 18, so be sure to check back often on the items you are coveting. You will be able to use your phones to bid on your favorite pieces, and we will notify you during the event if you are outbid.
