Celebrate the Wadsworth
Presented by the Mandell-Braunstein Family
Saturday, September 26
Watch the museum’s first virtual gala from the comfort of your home.
The Wadsworth is a special place filled with stories that open our imagination to the past and the endless opportunities awaiting in the future. This exciting hour-long program will celebrate the museum’s impact in the community, its rich history of ground-breaking exhibitions and provide a sneak preview of what we have planned for the coming year. Special guests include Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution Lonnie G. Bunch III, Director of the National Gallery, London Dr. Gabriele Finaldi, and artists Ali Banisadr, Todd Gray, Ed Johnetta Miller, and James Prosek.
All donations support the general operations of the museum.
