Fund for African American Art Annual Benefit

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.

Director Arnold Lehman, the Board of Trustees, and the Steering Committee for the Fund for African American Art invite you to our annual benefit. This year, we are thrilled to honor Saundra Williams-Cornwell and W. Don Cornwell for their longtime outstanding support and for giving the Fund identity, direction, and momentum. Their leadership and generosity have built our collection, enriched our programming, and created a community that will enrich the Museum's increasingly diverse audiences.

This evening, we also present a special preview of the newly acquired Black Arts Movement collection and select works from the upcoming exhibition Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties.

Catering by Saul restaurant and bar. For more information or to purchase advance tickets, please contact Mira Abramsohn, Manager of Individual Giving, by phone at (718) 501-6589 or by email.
