February 15 & 16, 2019

We have never thrown a party like this one!

VAE’s 35th annual gala is going to be one for the record books. Significant support from PNC Bank has allowed us to take exciting risks with this year’s event and provide you with a bold experience unlike anything you’ve experienced before!

We look forward to showing you an evening filled with wondrous experiences, amazing art, tasty food prepared by a collection of local chefs and fabulous cocktails! This year’s gala will be hosted in a 180,000+ square foot building that once housed a K-Mart department store thanks to Baker Roofing. For the months of February and March 2019 the space will be transformed into our third Black on Black exhibition, which highlights the creative contributions made by people of color. Our 35th gala will take place in the midst of this exhibition, allowing attendees to see VAE’s mission in action!
