The event benefits the Pioneers of American Landscape Design Project and What’s Out There New Orleans, a new online guide to the city’s cultural landscape legacy. The Annual Silent Auction is always a lively event, and the usual frenzy of bidding during the final moments is still to be expected.

For the first time, participants will be able to bid online and on their mobile devices. And participants will be automatically notified when they are outbid. Those who fall in love with one of the artworks can use the “instant buy” function to make an immediate purchase of any work on offer.

The are more than 90 items up for sale, and thanks to local art’s patron and devoted New Orleans supporter Charles Whited, some 25 percent of the works are by local, nationally significant artists such as Skylar Fein and Dan Tague – artists whose works are snapped up at leading international art fairs in New York City and elsewhere.

The Annual Silent Auction regularly features dozens of works by landscape architects, photographers, and many other artists. This year is no exception; the catalogue includes works by Martha Schwartz, Michael Kenna, Scott Frances, Millicent Harvey, and Pat Pickett, among many others. Also up for bid are rare books, including two by Thomas Church that came from his library and are autographed, and photographs taken by A.E. Bye.

Along with Scott Frances’ stunning aerial photograph of Central Park West in New York City, the auction also includes Montreal-based landscape architect Claude Cormier’s delightful limited-edition watercolor of the soon-to-be completed La fontaine de chiens au Parc Berzy in Toronto (which sets a new standard for dog parks worldwide); Keiji Asakura’s intricate and elegant woodblock print, Tofukuji Garden; Ken Smith’s limited-edition, mixed-media RIPARIAN DEITY; and so much more.

Register now, enjoy browsing the catalogue, and be sure to use the "watch item" tab to bookmark pieces of interest before bidding begins on October 8. Bid early and often, and be certain to visit New Orleans’ extraordinary legacy of cultural landscapes when you attend the ASLA Annual Meeting.

The event is made possible by ANOVA and annual sponsor ASLA.
