Guests at the ART & SOUL patron party and gala will enjoy the ultimate auction experience, thanks to AuctionsByCellular!

AuctionsByCellular allows you to bid on items with your cell phone. Just bring your phone to the event, and a staff member will sign you in. If you’d rather not bid on your phone, that’s okay, too – our “personal shoppers” can place bids on your behalf.

From the auction preview that begins on May 5 through the ART & SOUL gala on May 19, you can bid on items by text message or by using your smartphone browser. During ART & SOUL, you’ll be able to bid from absolutely anywhere, whether you’re watching alumni perform in the Nims Black Box Theatre or enjoying the night air in the Kurt & Anita Schon Courtyard.

On May 19, the auction will close at 9pm sharp, and within minutes, winners will receive notifications on their phones announcing what they’ve won. Winners will be able to pay for all their items at the checkout tables located in the lobby of Lupin Hall.

The NOCCA Institute is preparing to launch a host of initiatives within the coming months. These include important campus expansions, which will improve NOCCA’s learning environment and create ways for supporters, neighbors, and brand new fans to become a part of the NOCCA experience every day.

Intrigued? You can find out more during ART & SOUL. At 8:30pm, you’ll be treated to a sneak peek at the next exciting chapter in our history. Be on the lookout for a special display, created by the talented graphic artists at Solomon Group!
