The Albright-Knox’s annual gala will celebrate the stunning exhibition Picasso: The Artist and His Models. This exhibition features highlights from the museum’s collection alongside landmark masterpieces lent by our partners from around the world. Radiating the genius and beauty of the iconic artist, the evening will illuminate the strength and dynamism of the museum’s unparalleled collection.

This black-tie affair will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Sculpture Court, with the opportunity to view the exhibition in the adjoining galleries. Delaware North’s master chefs will draw their inspiration from Picasso’s Mediterranean heritage for an elegant dinner to follow in the 1962 Building. We look forward to an incredible evening celebrating extraordinary art, world-class cuisine and wines, and fellowship among our community in the museum’s historic galleries.

All proceeds benefit the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
