[Sub Title]


On Saturday, November 2, 2019, Phoenix Art Museum will host its annual gala, The pARTy in the Garden. This year’s gala will honor Ellen and Howard Katz, whose profound generosity made possible the construction of the Ellen and Howard C. Katz Wing for Modern Art, to recognize their tireless and long-time support of Phoenix Art Museum. In addition, gala guests will enjoy the exclusive premiere of Legends of Speed, the Museum’s first exhibition exploring the artistry and design of race cars, and a special 60th-anniversary exhibition on view in the Museum’s Katz Wing. The evening will also feature custom cocktails and fine food, followed by dancing under the stars in the Dorrance Sculpture Garden. 

For more information on The pARTy in the Garden or to host a table or purchase tickets, please contact us at or call 602.307.2012.
All proceeds from The pARTy in the Garden and The afterpARTy will support exhibitions and education programs at Phoenix Art Museum.

The afterpARTy, the Museum’s late-night, art-and-cocktails experience, will follow from 9 pm – 1 am, featuring access to the 60th-anniversary exhibition, a hosted bar, music, followed by dancing under the stars, and complimentary hors d’oeuvres and light desserts. Admission to The afterpARTy is included with The pARTy in the Garden tickets and is open to the public.
