All Academy of Art University previews and sales are free and open to the public. Should you have any questions please visit our website at www.academyart.edu/auction
The catalog includes value estimates for each lot. The estimates are provided as an approximate guide to current market value and should not be interpreted as a representation or prediction of actual selling prices. They are determined in advance and are subject to revision.
Before each auction, we publish illustrated catalogs that include dates and times for previews and auctions. Our catalogs also provide descriptions and estimated values for each “lot.” Lot descriptions are as follows:
LOT# » TITLE / Artist / Medium / Dimensions (in Inches) / Value / Starting Bid (silent auction only)
For both our Live and Silent Auctions, you can bid either in person or via absentee bid. By bidding at auction, whether in person or by absentee bid, the buyer or bidder agrees to be bound by the Conditions of Sale. Absentee bids can be submitted in person, online or via email. Academy of Art University assumes no responsibility for failure to execute bids for any reason whatsoever.
Live Auction Bidding
You must register before the start of the auction in order to participate. You can obtain registration information online, onsite or by calling 415.274.2200. All Live Auction bids are determined by auctioneer. Lots are auctioned in consecutive numerical order as they appear in the catalog. Bidding normally begins below the low estimate. The auctioneer will accept bids from interested parties present in the saleroom and from absentee bidders who have left written bids in advance of the sale.
