Have a pile of drawings and models that you don’t know what to do with? 

Want something other than your own work to look at on your walls? 

Need presents for friends and family for the upcoming holidays? 

Want to support a worthy student organization?


If so, participate in the DATUM Auction!


We are asking for donations of work from students, faculty, and community members. These may be finished drawings or moments of process, sketches or models, that could be appreciated by another. The proceeds from the auction will go toward supporting the current publication and future activities of DATUM. The proceeds from the donated works will go towards supporting the current publication and future activities of DATUM. 


DATUM is a student architectural publication with a mission to create a greater network of discourse for the students of Iowa State along with other institutions or departments relating to space and design. DATUM intends to grow, to incorporate more involvement with people of other institutions, to involve other journals and collectives, to bring in more events and lectures, and to continue to spread our publication in print and digitally. This means that money raised with your work would go towards printing and distribution costs of the DATUM journal, help bring visiting lecturers and guests, and support events of discussion and celebration.


The donated work will be on exhibit at the CoD Gallery, November 20-29th.

The silent auction will be held on November 29th, 5pm - 7pm


We are asking that all 2D work be provided ready to be hung on a gallery wall, which entails a sturdy back (as simple as matte board or a canvas structure) and that 3D work be able to be easily transportable. If you would like help meeting these guidelines or, please contact us!
