Benefit Events

The Drawing Center hosts two Benefit Events annually, typically in the fall and spring seasons. These events have taken the form of benefit exhibitions; auctions of artworks from leading contemporary artists; and celebratory gala dinners honoring exceptional individuals with their own unique relationships to our field. Funds raised through The Drawing Center’s benefit events account for a substantial portion of our annual operating budget, enabling the production of the institution’s groundbreaking exhibitions and publications, and supporting the continuation of its enduring mission.
