Empty BOX: Street Legal

May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Event Admission

Free and open to the public

BOX 13’s annual silent auction and fundraiser will be held on Saturday May 4th, 2024, at 7PM! This year’s theme is Empty BOX: Street Legal. We are celebrating coming of age at 16 and we all are ready to buckle up in our sweet ride and get our fundraiser on the road.

This spring, BOX 13 celebrates 16 years as a part of Houston’s vibrant art community. Our solid presence in the city is the result of current and past members’ hard work volunteering to run the space – from building studio walls to helping artists install shows in our galleries. Currently, we provide affordable studio spaces to 21 local artists, and this season we are scheduled to exhibit solo, group, and curated exhibitions in our 4 galleries for over 40 artists from across the country. We rely on the group as a whole to continuously further our mission to promote the creation and advancement of experimental contemporary art in Houston.

In order to support these initiatives and many more, each year we hold our exhibition and fundraiser, the Empty BOX! The fundraiser exists in two parts. We have the Silent Auction, which is an excellent way to add work from outstanding local, national, and international artists to your collection. We also have our Poor Man’s Raffle, offering the chance to win work by current BOX 13 Resident Artists.

A few ways you can support our fundraiser:
1.Attend the Empty BOX! We will have live music, decor, light bites, and a bar!

2.Bid on artwork! Every year we put together a selection of contemporary artists working in a variety of media. The starting bids are always very reasonable and bidding wars are fun!

3.Sponsor the Empty BOX! Sponsorship is crucial to the success of the event, plus you’ll get all kinds of cool perks like handmade items, custom art, and guided tours. Your name will live in infamy on our website (if you want it to, of course). See further details about different sponsorship levels and their perks below.

On behalf of all the artists involved with BOX 13 throughout the years, thank you for all that you do to support Houston’s artistic community! We look forward to seeing you soon!
