Treasure Market 2017: The Last Hurrah!
Final Art and Antiques Event and Sale Benefits
Cantor Arts Center’s Art Acquisitions Fund
March 31, April 1 and 2, 2017
STANFORD, CA — The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University announces Treasure Market 2017: The Last Hurrah!, held Friday through Sunday, March 31, April 1 and 2. Treasure Market is a popular resale event that has offered the Bay Area community art, antiques, china, collectible books, crystal, silver, linens, furs and jewelry from around the world since 1958. This final event celebrates Treasure Market’s contributions to the Cantor in spectacular style. Festivities begin at Friday’s opening- night party and sale, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., when guests can enjoy wine, sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and music. The weekend sale continues from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. All proceeds support the Cantor Arts Center’s fund to acquire new works of art for the museum.
The items for sale, donated by local residents, Stanford alumni, designers, art and antique dealers, and collectors, are organized into several areas: paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings and photographs; fine antiques, collectibles and heirloom furniture; oriental rugs and carpets; books including first editions, autographed copies and volume sets; fine china, silver, and crystal; jewelry and furs; Asian and world art. The Treasure Market committee is still seeking high-quality donations, however. Charitable donations allow anyone to take advantage of a fair-market-value tax deduction while benefiting a worthwhile institution. Donations can be dropped off at a warehouse located at 3585 Haven Ave., Suite C, Menlo Park every Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. to noon up to March 22. For questions or to coordinate large donations, please call the Treasure Market warehouse line at 650-468-1724.
The sale of all objects begins at the opening-night party. Tickets to that party are $100 for the general public and $75 for Cantor Arts Center members. Admission is $5 per day for the Saturday and Sunday sale.
Tickets are on sale now. All Treasure Market events are held at the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation on the Stanford campus, 341 Galvez Street at Campus Drive East. Parking is available in the Galvez lot across the street.

Cantor Arts Center
The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University is a vital and dynamic institution with a venerable history. Founded in 1891 with the university, the historic museum was expanded and renamed in 1999 for lead donors Iris and B. Gerald Cantor. The Cantor’s encyclopedic collection spans 5,000 years, includes more than 45,000 artworks and beckons visitors to travel across the globe and through time: from Africa to the Americas to Asia, from classical antiquity to the present day. With 24 galleries presenting selections from the collection and more than 20 special exhibitions each year, the Cantor serves Stanford’s academic community, draws art lovers from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and attracts campus visitors from around the world. Free admission, free tours, lectures, family activities and temporary exhibitions make the Cantor one of the most well-attended university art museums in the country and a great resource for teaching and research on campus.
