Is it possible for a Gala to be fun? With inspiration from the one and only comic genius Roz Chast, YES! Invited guests and sponsors will be treated to only the best of everything, served on a platter of piping hot irony, with a glass of aged, dry wit.

The Gala is also a celebration of Anne Morgan, Thomas L. Pulling, and Mark Selkowitz–three Museum leaders whose vision and dedication have guided the Museum into the digital age, strengthening its impact in the Community while broadening its reach across the Globe.

Special Gala Auctioneer: Priyanka Mathew, Sotheby’s Vice President, Head of Sales, Modern & Contemporary South Asian Art

Featuring Special Live Auction Items, including:
