Artists who support the Pilsudski Institute in this auction "Artists for History" create a new event in our social life. One hundred and eighteen (118) works of fifty-six artists will be exhibited, including those by Julian Stańczak, Hanna Bakuła, Andrzej Pityński, Janusz Kawa, Adam Niklewicz, John Hausbrandt and Jan Lebenstein. Some of the artists have already confirmed their presence at the auction, making it possible for prospective buyers to personally obtain information about their work. All the exhibits have been offered by the artists specifically for this event.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated mainly to the Pilsudski Institute of America. The funds that are being raised will support the Campaign for the Future, organized for the benefit of the Institute’s new headquarters and to ensure its stability in the coming years. The event is in the spirit of our declared mission of promoting Polish culture and art, including works by artists from the metropolitan New York area. We propose to hold the auction "Artists for History" twice yearly.

Preceding the auction a fair will be held on Sunday, November 9th from 2 PM to 6 PM at the Pilsudski Institute.
