OCADU announces dates for the 9th annual Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale

Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 4:00am

(Toronto — September 2, 2010) Art collectors: mark your calendars! OCAD University (OCADU) will hold its famous “Whodunit? OCADU Mystery Art Sale” on Saturday, November 20, with public previews taking place from November 17 to 19. Works will be available for online previews starting November 17 at www.ocad.ca.

One of Toronto’s most anticipated annual art events, the Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale presents work by OCADU students, faculty, alumni, acclaimed artists and designers and creative celebrities — all the same size (5½” x 7½”) and all the same price ($75) — with proceeds supporting OCADU’s unique creative environment.

All artworks — ranging from paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, sculptures, textiles or jewellery, to graphic works, illustrations, prototypes and mock-ups — are exhibited anonymously. Art enthusiasts can shop relieved of the pressure of needing to know who the artists are, or they can take pleasure in the guessing game! The artist behind the work is only revealed after it’s purchased.

Since it began in 2001, Whodunit? has raised more than $900,000 to support creativity and learning for students at OCAD University. Help us reach the $1 million mark in 2010!

Art works are sold on a first-come-first-served basis on Saturday, November 20, starting at 10 a.m.
