Donate Now

Your donation will directly sustain the Museum's dynamic and diverse exhibitions and programming, ensuring that the KMA continues to be a vital force in our cultural community for many years to come. It can also support education programs for...

  • Education programs for children, families, students, and seniors to enrich lives through art;

  • Future catalogues and exhibitions of every culture and time period;

  • Infrastructure and capital improvements.

All guests are required to show proof of full vaccination to attend the event. Thank you for your patience and support during this time. Event requirements are subject to change based on the current CDC and New York State guidelines.

We are with you. The Katonah Museum of Art is committed to providing a welcoming environment while ensuring the well-being of our guests and community. As our largest fundraiser, the annual Gala allows us to fulfill our mission to promote the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. Your safety and the safety of the community are our highest priorities. To ensure that all our guests have the best experience possible we will: 

  • Require proof of full vaccination for all attendees.  

  • Provide outdoor tables and seating, weather permitting. Speakers and a TV monitor will allow guests to participate while outside.  

  • Conduct the silent auction and paddle raise live in-person and online.  

  • Ensure that the 71% capacity limit is not exceeded. Accept absentee bids for the live and silent auctions.  

If you are unable to attend in person, we ask that you still support the Gala by donating to the paddle raise or bidding in the live and silent auctions. The Museum's ongoing operating expenses, including staff salaries and facility costs, have remained constant and we ask for your support. 

Thank you for helping us reach our annual Gala fundraising goal and for your vote of confidence in the KMA.  Your contribution will allow us to continue to present innovative exhibitions that span all cultures, artistic styles, and periods. 

Event Program

We are excited to celebrate the KMA community with a live gala at the American Yacht Club. Join us in honoring Tara Coniaris and Casey Carter as we dance the night away alongside the moonlit water. The evening will include live and silent auctions, Dancin' Machine - an eleven-piece band, open bar, a buffet-style cocktail hour and dinner including carving and fresh pasta stations. Reserved tables are available for select ticket levels, as well as a 'dessert and dancing' ticket where you arrive at 8:15PM to enjoy the auction, dancing, and late bites.   

Silent Auction will close at 10:00 PM on Saturday, October 16. Items designated 'Early Close' will close at 8:00 PM instead of 10:00 PM. All auction proceeds will benefit the KMA. 

Your continued support in these challenging times allow the KMA to continue to transform its programs, meet its mission, and present art from diverse cultures and time periods. All proceeds benefit the KMA's mission and programs.
