2019 Gala

Wednesday, Nov 06, 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
At CMA, 103 Charlton Street, New York

 

Honoring

 

Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Gala returns for a stunning evening at our museum in SoHo. The museum will be transformed into an elegant venue featuring over 80 contemporary art works donated by artists specially chosen by guest selectors. 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 art auction runs throughout the evening, with all proceeds benefiting CMA.

Tickets are sold out, but you can still make a donation by texting CMAGALA to 443-21 or clicking here!

All proceeds from artwork sold at the auction support CMA’s free Community Programs, which bring outstanding arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City, and CMA’s groundbreaking contemporary art exhibitions. We bring the transformative power of art to New York City’s most vulnerable families, including children with disabilities, students in 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.
