MONROVIA, CA – While everyone at John Moran Auctioneers has been hard at work facilitating their move from Altadena, CA to their newly renovated facility in downtown Monrovia, their November 17, 2015 Decorative Art Auction has been quietly coalescing.

Contrary to previous reports, this auction will be held at Moran’s usual off-site venue, the Pasadena Convention Center, as renovations at their new location are still underway.
