2020 McKim Medal Gala

  • Wednesday, 10 June 2020 - 7:00pm
Villa Aurelia
Rome

The 2020 McKim Medal Gala, celebrating the 125th anniversary of the American Academy in Rome, will take place on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at the Villa Aurelia in Rome.

The McKim Medal Gala in Rome honors individuals whose work internationally—especially in Italy and in the United States—has contributed significantly to the arts and humanities, and whose life exemplifies creative and intellectual exchange across the arts, scholarship, language, and culture. Proceeds support the American Academy in Rome’s efforts to foster interdisciplinary exchange among Italian and American artists and scholars within an exceptional global community. The Fellowship program enables talented Italians and Americans to pursue their work in an intellectually stimulating environment, and to contribute to evolving international discourse and interdisciplinary exchange through their participation in Academy programs such as concerts, lectures, readings, and exhibitions.
