The evening will also feature a sneak peek of the Museum’s new blockbuster exhibition, New York, New Music: 1980-1986.
To keep everyone safe, this year's gala is reimagined as an intimate, outdoor dinner for up to 150 gala and exhibition donors of $25,000+. The following week, we will present a virtual experience featuring the evening’s award presentation, musical performances, and an exclusive virtual tour of New York, New Music.
