Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Art Art Auction and Cocktail Party returns for a stunning evening at our museum in SoHo. 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 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, and CMA’s groundbreaking contemporary art exhibitions. These programs serve children on the Autism spectrum, those with physical disabilities, children living in transitional housing, children attending Title 1 schools, families navigating the NYC child welfare system, and more. Last year, CMA served approximately 139,296 children and family members, with 57,000 receiving free service through our Community Programs. Your contribution directly supports CMA’s ability to provide families access to these vital resources free of charge.

We invite our supporters to buy an ad in the Art Auction Program. To purchase an ad or become a sponsor, contact Abbigail Willingham at awillingham@cmany.org.
