WASHINGTON—On Friday, April 25, 2014, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) will celebrate its annual Spring Gala, “Nine Thousand and Nine Hundred Nights…A Special Night to Salute You! Our Patrons, Our Members and Our Friends” chaired by Annie S. Totah and under the patronage of Her Imperial Majesty Empress Farah Pahlavi.

Upon arrival, guests will have the opportunity to view the special exhibition “Workt by Hand”: Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts, which allows a rare look at superlative examples of two centuries of American and European quilt making from the Brooklyn Museum’s renowned decorative arts collection.

The annual black-tie gala will continue with cocktails in the galleries and a silent auction followed by dinner by Susan Gage Caterers and dancing in the elegant Great Hall. The evening is inspired by a Moorish/Marrakesh theme crafted by Capital Décor. Dancers and instrumentalists will perform.
