Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Art Auction & Cocktail Party returns this year for a dazzling night on Wednesday, November 14. The museum will be transformed into an elegant venue featuring 100 contemporary art works donated by artists specially chosen by guest curators. Join us for a VIP evening celebrating the individuals, artists, and supporters who have made CMA the premier children’s museum in the city over the last 30 years. A silent auction runs throughout the evening, with all proceeds benefiting CMA.

All proceeds support CMA’s free Community Programs, which bring high-quality arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City.

All proceeds from artwork sold at the auction support CMA’s free Community Programs, which bring high-quality arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City. These programs serve children on the autism spectrum, those with physical disabilities, children living in transitional housing, children attending Title 1 schools, and families in the NYC child welfare system. Last year, CMA served approximately 138,000 children and family members, with 42,000 receiving free service through our Community Programs. Your contribution directly supports CMA’s ability to provide families with access to these vital resources free of charge.
