We are excited to celebrate the KMA community with a live gala at the American Yacht Club. Join us as we dance the night away alongside the moonlit water. The evening will include live and silent auctions, an eleven-piece band, cocktail hour, and dinner. Reserved tables are available for select ticket levels, as well as a ‘dessert and dancing’ ticket for those who wish to arrive at 8:15 PM to enjoy the auction, dancing and dessert.


 

Buy a ticket and register to bid in the live and silent auctions. Not attending? You can still participate in the silent auction. Auction items will be available for viewing on the KMA Gala website 1-2 weeks prior to the event.

The Katonah Museum of Art is committed to providing a welcoming environment while ensuring the well-being of our guests and community. As our largest fundraiser, the annual Gala allows us to fulfill our mission to promote the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. Your safety and the safety of the community are our highest priorities. To ensure that all our guests have the best experience possible we will:

  • Require proof of full vaccination for all attendees.
  • Provide outdoor tables and seating, weather permitting. Speakers and a TV monitor will allow guests to participate while outside.
  • Conduct the silent auction and paddle raise live in-person and online
  • Ensure that the 71% capacity limit is not exceeded. Accept absentee bids for the live and silent auctions

If you are unable to attend in person, we ask that you still support the Gala by donating to the paddle raise or bidding in the live and silent auctions. The Museum’s ongoing operating expenses, including staff salaries and facility costs, have remained constant and we ask for your support

Thank you for helping us reach our annual Gala fundraising goal and for your vote of confidence in the KMA.  Your contribution will allow us to continue to   present innovative exhibitions that span all cultures, artistic styles, and periods.

All guests are required to show proof of full vaccination to attend the event. Thank you for your patience and support during this time. Event requirements are subject to change based on the current CDC and New York State guidelines.
