It’s never too early to plan for a big celebration. Save the date of April 12, 2019 for the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's annual fundraiser gala. 

Chaired by Anne Carter and Dean Smith and presented by Domtar, all proceeds support the museum’s operating costs, including exhibitions, public programs, and community outreach programs that benefit the quality of life for citizens typically underserved by the visual arts sector.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2019.


Interested in supporting the gala with a corporate sponsorship? Contact Rebecca Morris, Vice President of Development, by emailing or by calling 704.353.9216.
