Ready to add some great art to your life? Interested in acquiring something for that special someone for the upcoming gift-giving season?

Our acclaimed Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) is celebrating its 27th Annual Collector’s Choice Auction and Fundraiser at the Montage on Friday, Nov. 18th. Tickets are moving rapidly but are still available for this popular gala event.

Proceeds from the gala tickets and auction benefit all LCAD students and also fund the $2.4 and $2.5 million awarded for student scholarships. This is a great way to not only support, but celebrate LCAD as one of the Top 10 Art Colleges in the United States! (… In fact, gee, that’s actually the title for this year’s event – LCAD Celebration.)

The Collector’s Choice is a juried auction of fantastic artwork, and this year it only gets better with a variety of mediums on display at the gorgeous Montage Resort grounds. The group is definitely raising a toast to this year’s art, comprised exclusively from LCAD faculty, alumni, visiting artists and select students.

What better way to support our own homegrown LCAD than on an oceanfront bluff with the choicest dinner and live entertainment around?

Tickets for the Collector’s Choice auction and gala are $350 per person. Purchase tickets online any time at, and use the same link to preview all of the art in the auction.
