Peace, Love, Harmony: 1960s Vermont 2018-12-10T09:54:25+00:00

Project Description

The Festival:
Peace, Love, Harmony
1960s Vermont

November 23 through December 28

In 2019 we will be looking back 50 years to the end of the 1960s with a cluster of exhibitions, celebrations, and events. This year‘s Festival looks at the lasting impact of the art and spirit of the 60s on artists today, and served as a prelude to next summer‘s major exhibition Fields of Change: 1960s Vermont

A major part of this year’s seasonal celebration is the presentation of works by thirty-eight contemporary artists who have reimagined, reinterpreted, or responded to images and art found relating to 1960s Vermont. Each piece on display in the changing galleries beginning November 23 will be for sale by closed-bid auction through December 28 at 4 pm.  The winning bid will be split with 50% going to the artist and 50% going to the Museum.

As works in the closed-bid auction become available, they will be posted here.  Take a look and then stop in the museum to place your bid or write sstrano@benningtonmuseum.org.  You can also fax your bid to 802-442-8305.  These will be considered legal and binding bids.  Bids by phone are not allowed.  All bids will be opened by two people and date stamped.  The person with the highest will be declared the winner and be contacted by January 4, 2019 for payment and to arrange a pick-up time.  In the event of a tie, the bid placed first will be the winner.  To avoid a tie, we urge you to bid an odd amount such as $586.54 rather than $500.
