ICON: THE BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART'S 2018 GALA

It’s never too early to plan for a big celebration. Mark your calendar for Icon: The 2018 Gala, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's annual fundraiser gala to be held on April 20, 2018. All proceeds will benefit the museum’s operating costs, including exhibitions, public programs, and community outreach initiatives that encourage an appreciation of the arts, culture, education, and inclusiveness.

Presented by Barings, Icon will be a tribute to the Bechtler Collection’s modern and contemporary artists, which will be on view in the museum’s fourth-floor galleries in the exhibition Wrestling the Angel.  Always artistic in presentation, the Gala is one of the most fun and engaging parties of the year. Guests will experience an inspired menu and bar, compelling décor, entertainment throughout the museum, and a silent auction.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2018.
