The Noble Maritime Collection's annual art auction is a Staten Island tradition. Year in and year out, work on the auction block—all of which is donated by artists and art collectors—comprises an exceptional array of artistic mastery. The 29th Annual John A. Noble Art Auction will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017. The event begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres—a time to peruse the art on the block, meet the artists, and compare notes with other guests while dining on exceptional cuisine by the museum's great caterer, Catering by Framboise. Chris Olert will be our witty master of ceremonies, and our expert auctioneer Damon Urban will offer commentary about each piece. Whether you leave with a work of art or not, you'll help support a great cause and encourage the work of fine contemporary artists and craftspeople.
