More than 300 works of art by emerging and established artists were put up for bid at MassArt’s 28th annual auction over the weekend, raising $1.3 million to support scholarships and academic programs at the school. Seven hundred artists, collectors, and other guests were in attendance, including MassArt president David Nelson and wife Kimberly, MassArt trustee William McQuillan and wife Linda, MassArt Foundation director Emma Calus and her husband, Thomas, and Kristina Lyons, owner of the Chestnut Hill boutique Portobello Road.
