The annual Gala fundraiser will return on April 1, 2023. The National Advisory Board is looking forward to hosting an elegant event that celebrates the Art Museum, its collection, and its merits. The Museum depends on corporate and individual support to continue and expand its work. As a partner in our community, we invite you to attend the Benefit Gala.


This year’s Gala is inspired by the art of Michiko Itatani and the new exhibit, Cosmic: Works from the Collection, featuring pieces from the museum’s collection. Michiko Itatani’s enigmatic and breathtaking large-scale paintings are currently on display at the museum. A Cosmic Ball will be a festive evening of fine food, libations, music, and friendship, all to support the extensive programs of the UW Art Museum.
