NAS Art Auction and Cocktail Party

NAS Art Auction and Cocktail Party


The NAS Art Auction and Cocktail Party is the National Art School’s annual fundraiser. It is a major cultural event featuring art and entertainment across our campus, including artist interventions; a live and silent artwork auction; performances by the renowned NAS Artist Band; a pumping dance floor; and an afterparty hosted by Archie Rose. NAS is where the future of art is trained, and the future of art comes together.
