The Alan Cole Memorial Auction is the Trust’s biggest fund-raising event of the year and is held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Association of Medical Illustrators. The Auction is named in affectionate honor of Alan Cole, medical illustrator, teacher, friend and former auctioneer.
Participation in the Silent and Live Auctions is open to all: illustrator, spouse, client and student alike. There is something for everyone: from rare first-edition medical books to original art, from Craig Gosling’s plaster gorilla paws to Russell Drake’s pencil box, and from award winning contemporary medical books to limited edition prints by AMI members. Whether you come as a rabid-weasel bidder or a wide-eyed wallet-sitter, the Auction is a boisterous, irreverently good time benefiting a good cause.
