ABOUT THE GALA
Celebrating its 24th year, The Gala is El Museo’s single most important fundraising event of the year. It raises essential support for the museum’s critically acclaimed exhibitions and valued public and educational programs. Funds raised at the Gala enable El Museo to continue their important work and keep expanding the scope of their reach. This spectacular event brings together luminaries from the worlds of fashion, entertainment, business, society, politics, and the arts in order to raise crucial operating funds for the museum.
The theme for Gala 2017 celebrates Women in the Arts, and the creative talents of this years’ Honorees: artist Carmen Herrera and designer Nancy Gonzalez, and the philanthropic achievements of the MetLife Foundation. Join us to celebrate El Museo’s successes at The Plaza Hotel, with what promises to be an evening of glamour and elegance.
