Rubin Gala

Thursday, October 11, 2018
6:30 PM–9:30 PM

For those who have taken tickets and tables to the Rubin Gala, we look forward to seeing you!

For those interested at this late date, we are sorry to report that the Gala is now full. We hope to see you on another occasion!


Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street New York City

Black Tie or Festive Attire


Take part in an elegant and surprising participatory evening with warm company, delicious food and drink, a silent auction, and experiences you won’t find anywhere but at the Rubin.

Traverse the rings of time on tree stumps from artist Matti Braun’s pond installation in A Lost Future. Generate a karmic chain reaction in which our individual and collective hopes and fears come into a new balance. Create a positive future for yourself, your loved ones, and the whole world.
