54 Below

Encore by popular demand! Throw your paddle in the ring armed with fistfuls of cash as you rival your fellow audience members to be the last bidder standing at our high-end art auction Beneath the Gavel. Feinstein’s/54 Below transforms into a Sotheby’s-like auction house complete with deep-pocket collectors, ruthless art dealers, celebrity artists, and cut-throat auctioneers all vying for the prized Haddie Weisenberg Collection. With world-renowned auctioneer Barbara Strongin at the podium, Beneath the Gavel exposes the hidden agendas and dirty secrets of the art world. As the stakes rise, so does the tension of a world that deals in billions. Not a Rockefeller? Don’t worry, Bated Breath provides the money.
