“Funding the Future” with Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) in Partnership with Leon Gallery

Finally, here comes the much awaited month of September as the “Funding the Future” with Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) in partnership with Leon Gallery live auction will be happening on September 8, 2018. In addition to the arts, memorabilia, antique furniture that tells so much stories on “The Magnificent September Auction 2018" there will be more.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of MCAD. The Museum, which is part of the De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde, is a free, not-for-profit institution that delivers programming and content that encourages engagement with art and culture, its practice and production, as well as its presentation and interpretation.

By fostering partnerships with a range of arts and cultural institutions, the past four years has seen MCAD’s programming advance rapidly. Very much aware of its contribution to local art making and its expanding role in the region, MCAD remains reflexive and responsive to changes in society, politics and the production of ideas. As they celebrate their 10th year anniversary, fundraiser will consist of a group show made up of work donated by eminent local, regional and international artists, many of whom have been part of MCAD exhibitions and others who are supportive of its initiatives and vision. 

Whilst we encourage you to take part in the auction event, MCAD also accepts charitable, tax deductible donations and in-kind sponsorship. By supporting MCAD, you will be part of the Museum’s future, a future peopled by creative minds and a visionary outlook.
