Abracadabra is an exhibition of over a hundred works that culminates with a live drawing in which every ticket holder goes home with an original piece of art. Tickets start at $375.

Each Abracadabra ticket purchased will guarantee the bearer to go home with a work of art valued at greater than the ticket price. At 8 pm on March 14th, all ticket holders’ names will be randomly drawn, one by one. When your name is called, you get to choose any work of art that has not yet been selected.

If you are picked first, you have first choice of all the artwork, the second name picked gets second choice, and so on – everyone is a winner! Proxy bidding will be available for those unable to attend. Complimentary full bar, hors d’oeuvres, and live magic. $35 buys general admission for one person to the event (this does not include Abracadabra drawing participation).
