Maybe you're looking to begin an art collection but don't know where to start. Or maybe you want to augment your existing collection with an artist whose work can be hard to obtain. Whatever your situation, you're guaranteed to find beautiful, affordable art at the 6th annual Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD) Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale, presented by BMO Financial Group, taking place Nov. 20 to 24.
A Toronto tradition, Whodunit? has been called 'one of the city's most ingenious visual art fundraisers' by Globe and Mail art critic Sarah Milroy. Whodunit? offers hundreds of original works donated by Canadian artists, creative celebrities, OCAD faculty, alumni and students.

Other contributors this year include Sandra Altwerger, Kai Chan, Andy Fabo, David Kaye, Barbara Klunder, Burton Kramer, Jesus Mora, Charles Pachter, Reinhard Reitzenstein, Rachel Taggart, Gary Taxali and Tony Urquhart to name only a few.
