Gala

This is a year in which everything must be rethought—including our Annual Gala. Yet, the vital importance of this fundraiser persists, and thus we have developed a new model—and a new date—and invite you now to join us for Gala 2021: A Global Gathering.  

Our staff have been hard at work shaping ever more robust and varied digital experiences that allow close encounters with great art; virtually teaching students around the globe; continuing to expand the digital richness of our online collections; providing digital internship opportunities for future arts professionals; conserving the artworks within our collections; and undertaking the many critical projects essential to beginning construction of the new Museum.  Your support helps us to remain impactful and visible through these virtual times, and we remain enormously grateful.
