In six short years, Whodunit? has established itself as one of Toronto’s favourite art events. OCAD students, faculty, alumni and many other artists, designers and creative celebrities who support the university donate 5_” x 7_” works, each of which is sold for $75. The identity of the mystery artist is revealed on the back of each artwork.

In 2007, the sale raised more than $225,000 to support OCAD’s unique creative environment. This year, Whodunit? proceeds will fund resources and upgrades for the Dorothy H. Hoover Library and a new student Learning Zone at OCAD. Every piece of art sold supports the learning experience of OCAD students.

New this year, the works in the public sale will be available for preview online at www.ocad.ca starting on November 19.

Work is sold on a first-come-first-served basis on Saturday, November 22, starting at 10 a.m. Hint: the best way buyers can ensure they get the work they want is to come to see the work in person or preview the work online, make a wish list, and arrive early at the sale!
