The Páez will be bestowed during VAEA’s Annual Benefit Gala on December 18th, 2018 at the David Rubenstein Atrium in Lincoln Center, New York City.
The VAEA is honored to celebrate the work of Bob Colacello, an American writer, editor, photographer, curator and philanthropist, whose deep understanding of culture and fertile writing have contributed to the chronicling of America's contemporary history making him an ideal candidate for the The Páez 2017 Medal of Art.
Gustavo Dudamel’s outstanding contributions to the arts as a tireless advocate for music education, as well as his unique passion and talent for music have earned him a place in history as one of the greatest and most influential music conductors of all time. We are proud to recognize him with the The Páez 2018 Medal of Art.
The VAEA’s Annual Benefit Gala is a night to bestow the Páez Medal of Art and to celebrate the best of Venezuelan and US cultures. The evening will gather an international crowd to honor Bob Colacello & Gustavo Dudamel and to support VAEA’s bi-national mission in the arts.
This will be VAEA’s 7th Benefit Gala in New York City.
