INCOGNITO, the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s highly anticipated annual art exhibition and benefit sale, returns for its fifth year on Saturday, May 2, 2009. The element of surprise that underlies INCOGNITO reflects the essence of discovery that inspires SMMoA’s exhibitions, education, and outreach programs. All proceeds directly support the museum, which in 2008 celebrated two decades of creative accomplishment.

INCOGNITO 2009 will feature an unprecedented number of acclaimed artists—more than 480—who have donated their works in an 8” x 10`` format. All works are $300 each. Complete artist list below.

Attendees—from sophisticated art supporters to first-time collectors, artists, and art enthusiasts—are encouraged to trust their instincts to guide their selections, as works are signed on the back and artist identities are revealed only after purchase. For this year’s benefit, John Baldessari designed an extraordinary logo that represents the spirit of this groundbreaking event.

Doors open at 7 p.m. sharp.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres served from 7 to 9:30 p.m., with music by DJ Eddie Ruscha.
