LKV's Art Auction

Tuesday 24 May 2022
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Young artists, art collectors, and art enthusiasts!

We are pleased to announce that the LKV (de Leidse Kunsthistorische Vereniging) will be hosting another Art Auction this year! Our purpose is to bring together appreciators of art, to give deserved acknowledgment to young artists, and to allow you to start your very own art collection.  

The event will take place on the Tuesday 24 May, so save this date in your calendars! With the location being Lipsius in room 0.11, we will welcome you with a drink at 19:00 followed by the start of the auction at 19:30. You will also be able to join the event online, via zoom, if this is more desirable for you! The link will be provided later, so keep an eye on our social media. 

After the auction, there will be plenty of time to celebrate the purchases of the artworks and mingle with the other attendees.

Auction details

The auction is divided into two sections. The first part will showcase artists that have been chosen by the auction committee, for which a percentage of the profit will go to MINDYoung, a charity for the mental health of students in the Netherlands. The second part will showcase the artists that were chosen through the open call, with as theme Hope for Ukraine, for which a percentage of the profit will go Save Lives in Ukraine. We are a non-profit organisation; hence, in addition to the charitable case, your purchase will fully benefit our featured artists! 

Get in touch!
