An Artists' Affair: Art Off the Walls

Saturday, May 20, 2023 | 6-10 pm

Join us on Saturday May 20 for the annual An Artists’ Affair: Art Off The Walls Gala to support children’s art education. All proceeds enable MAG to bring the experience of the arts to the region’s schoolchildren by providing critical operating funds for school programs, expanding and diversifying our audience and broadening access to MAG through programs like the MAG-Rochester City School District Expanded Learning Collaboration. A museum-based learning partnership that currently serves every student in grades 2-4 in five Rochester City elementary schools.  As part of this museum-school repeat visit partnership, each student visits MAG once a week for four consecutive weeks during the school year, engaging in a series of curriculum-based hands-on and in-gallery experiences.

Event Highlights

An Artists’ Affair: Art Off the Walls is a lively, delightful, and fast-paced gala. The evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and preview of the hundreds of artworks that were kindly donated to this event in support.  Guests will enjoy featured performances, a thrilling auction and lively cash call. Alongside coffee and dessert is the grand finale “Art Off The Walls”, where attendees get to take home a new-to-them work of art. Happy guests depart with smiles on their faces, artwork in their hands, and the honor of knowing they’ve supported a good cause. An evening not to be missed!

*Guests will have the opportunity to visit MAG and review all of the donated art in person before the event.
