Available payment options
MOWA will offer a complimentary delivery service for anyone living within a 120 mile radius of MOWA in West Bend. Delivery dates and times must be arranged by mutual agreement.
Buyers outside the stated radius of MOWA may arrange to have the artwork packed and shipped at the buyer’s expense through Guardian Fine Art Services in Milwaukee. To have an initial discussion regarding packing and shipping fees, contact MOWA’s Registrar Andrea Waala at 262.247.2273 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know that it may take longer than usual this year to get purchased pieces into the hands of buyers due to the extenuating circumstances currently caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
All merchandise purchased must be removed from the premises within (14) days from the day of the auction. Smaller items may be taken immediately following the Auction once payment has been processed and approved. The Museum shall have no liability for any damage or loss to property left on its premises.
Terms & Conditions
The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) reserves the right to add items to or withdraw items from the Auction without notice. MOWA has attempted to describe and catalogue all items accurately, but all items are offered “as is, where is.” Unless otherwise indicated, all items are in ready to hang condition. MOWA neither warrants nor represents, and in no event shall be responsible for, the correctness of the descriptions, genuineness, authorship, provenance, or condition of the items. No statement made in this catalogue, orally at the Auction, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. The values listed are estimates of fair market values. Items have not been appraised by MOWA. Each person (bidder) issued a bid number assumes all risks and hazards related to the items obtained at the Auction. Each bidder agrees to hold harmless from any liability arising there from MOWA, its employees, the event organizers, sponsors, and volunteers connected with the Auction.
All items purchased in the Auction become the property of the winning bidder once that bidder is acknowledged online or by the Auctioneer during the Live Auction. All bids are considered final and nonrefundable. Unless exempted by law, the purchaser will be required to pay Wisconsin and local sales tax (5.5%), as applicable. There is no buyer's premium. The name(s) of the successful bidder may be released to the item's donor unless the bidder specifically requests in writing that their information not be shared. Purchaser's contact information will not be released without consent.
In the event of any dispute between bidders, the Museum shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after sale, MOWA’s sale record shall be conclusive in all respects. Upon the completion of sale, title to any offered lot or article will immediately pass to the Buyer. Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for the property purchased and agrees to pay the full purchase price immediately upon receipt of the invoice.
Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms and all other terms printed within, posted, and announced at the time of sale. These conditions of sale shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Wisconsin. If the purchaser breaches any of their obligations under the Conditions of Sale, MOWA may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, canceling the sale and applying any payments made by the purchaser to the damages caused by the purchaser's breach.
