    We sold 85 pieces and the highest bid was $500 for an Eric Banas iron, steel and Plexiglas sculpture called Garden Whimsy.  

    Gary Daigneualt served as the evening’s auctioneer.  

    “All was wonderful!” Sandy Fleck, CMC Foundation executive director, said after the event. “There was something for everyone’s tastes and pocketbooks. We are so very thankful for the tremendous generosity that the artists and the entire Morongo Basin bestow on our community college.”


    Proceeds from the annual art auction benefit the CMC Art Department, help to fund scholarships including the Terry Waite Memorial Art Scholarship, awards for the RGB Multi-media Competition for digital photography students, and to publish “Howl,” the college’s literary magazine
