2016 Arts & Adventure Auction

Saturday, April 9 at the Convention Center
Doors open at 6 pm, Outcry Auction starts at 7 pm


Our Annual Arts and Adventure Auction is the Kodiak Arts Council’s single biggest annual fundraiser – and it is a lot of fun! We are running a Treasure Island-themed costume contest with prizes determined by auction-goers. Dress up for your chance to win, or enjoy seeing your friends and neighbors in their pirate best. 

April 10 update: Thank you, Kodiak, for making our Arts & Adventure Auction a huge success! Together we raised more than $33,000 for our programs, and our work to create opportunities for the people of Kodiak to experience and participate in the arts. We are so grateful to our generous donors who filled the convention center with more than 200 items, and our bidders, many of whom paid above and beyond estimated values for the items purchased. Bravo, and thank you.


Download a 2016 Arts & Adventure Auction program to learn more about our event. And remember - our priemere item, a 1940s ivory and baleen ship by Carl Iyakitan, will be auctioned April 22, 2016 through the Alaska Auction Company.
