Forman House Bicentennial

The Zen Center's silent art auction, Oct. 10-17, is the culminating event of a month-long series marking the bicentennial of the Joshua Forman House, built by Syracuse's founder and first president. The auction features art from the personal collection of Shinge Roshi Sherry Chayat, and showcases works by local artists of international repute. 

Final bidding will occur on Sunday, October 17th, at 3 pm, after the Soh Daiko Drum Concert.  Bidders are asked to be present at the close of the auction.

We invite you to visit our Online Gallery (below) to view the art and learn about the artists. To place a bid, visit the Zen Center at 266 West Seneca Turnpike.

The Forman House Gallery is open for viewing and bidding: Oct 10-15 after Zen meditation, and during the Oct. 16-17 Bicentennial celebratory weekend.  Call the Zen Center at 315-492-9773 for viewing times and more information.  All of the art has been generously donated to the Zen Center, and proceeds support the Zen Center in the completion of its five-year Capital Campaign.
