Annual Benefit Gala

The gala is an annual fundraiser for the University of Wyoming Art Museum, and includes a dinner, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment. Typically, the gala has around 200-300 attendees who travel across the region to be a part of the evening events. The gala is hosted by the UW Art Museum National Advisory Board and provides significant financial support for museum exhibitions, collections, education and outreach.


Save the Date: The University of Wyoming Art Museum will host its next annual gala fundraiser in April 2022.
