Event Description

About the Gala

Join gala co-chairs Ashley Davis and Marlene Malek for a special night at the museum’s largest annual fundraising event, made possible by Dior. The Ambassador of France, Mr. Philippe Étienne will be our Honorary Diplomatic Chair. The evening will feature a seated dinner and entertainment. This year’s gala will honor Dior’s first woman Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, feminist artist Judy Chicago, and co-CEO and president of Ariel Investments Mellody Hobson each with NMWA’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Proceeds from the Spring Gala benefit the museum’s special exhibitions, and diverse education and public programming initiatives, allowing us to champion women artists of the past, present, and future.
