Honoring: John Crabtree
Chair: Kathy Abbott

The Katonah Museum of Art will honor John Crabtree, a longtime supporter of the Museum and one of Westchester’s most beloved culinary figures, at its most important fundraising event of the year, the Museum’s spring gala Food Wine Art Love, on Friday, June 9th. Chairing the gala is interior designer and KMA’s newest Board Member, Kathy Abbott. “I’m thrilled to be chairing such a special evening for the Museum. In honor of John Crabtree, we have curated an evening of superb food and wine that will be beautifully presented – a fabulous way to start summer,” said Ms. Abbott. The evening’s dining experience will feature a menu inspired by John Crabtree’s long-standing commitment to farm-to-table food. The evening will also feature a curated auction of contemporary art from noted New York City galleries and private collections.

The funds raised through Food Wine Art Love will be used by the Museum to support not only its exhibition and education programs, but also the activation of additional outdoor space. “My family and I have loved visiting the Museum over the years. I couldn’t be happier to help the KMA, an invaluable community asset, continue to thrive and grow,” said John Crabtree.

The evening commences with cocktails in the Marilyn M. Simpson Sculpture Garden during which guests can mingle with Museum Executive Director Darsie Alexander and leaders from the community while sipping specialty cocktails inspired by the season. Dinner under the tent will be catered by New York City-based Robbins Wolfe. The gala guests can dance the night away under the stars at the always popular after party.

In addition to celebrating John Crabtree’s legacy, the evening’s theme also is inspired by the Museum’s current exhibition, Picturing Love: Photography’s Pursuit of Intimacy, on view through June 25th, 2017.
