Thank you to everyone who supported our New York Gala on October 26, 2021!

Our generous donors raised more than $1.3 million to support the Academy’s programming and gathered for a truly special night honoring Mary Schmidt Campbell (Trustee Emerita), Julie Mehretu (2020 Resident), and John Guare (2013 Resident) and featuring a performance of a piece by Tania León (1998 Resident).

The evening featured a film about the impact of the Academy that you can view here.
