Open Wall at BMOCA

  • Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art 1750 13th Street Boulder, CO (map)

Local artists are invited to BMoCA to share their work at Open Wall – a one-night, self-curated exhibition and silent auction that raises funds for BMoCA and your local art community. Mingle with artists and art supporters, bid on a new work of art for your collection, and enjoy music, light hors d’œuvres, and refreshments.


4:30pm doors open for artists
4:30-6:30pm installation period 
5:30-8pm free public reception + silent auction 
8pm auction closes

Call for artists:

Show your work at BMoCA’s Open Wall and support your museum. Participation is free. All artwork needs to be install-ready, and artists install their work beginning at 4:30pm on a first-come, first-serve basis. BMoCA provides wall space, pedestals, hammers, and nails. All artistic media are welcome.

Proceeds from the silent auction are split 50/50 between the artist and BMoCA. Artists who are members of BMoCA receive a greater percentage of the sale of their work through a 60/40 split with the museum. To become a member or learn about our membership levels, please click here.
