About the Event

We warmly invite you to support MAG’s Annual Gala, An Artists’ Affair, Art After Dark

All proceeds from the evening will support MAG’s commitment towards greater access to education, exhibitions and programming for the Rochester community and beyond. 

The Gala will feature captivating Swing Dance performances, a vibrant music set by DJ Keyo, and immersive activities such as docent-led tours, silent films, and live painting. Guests can also enjoy unique experiences like "The Casino," a 1920s Candy Bar, and a Silent Disco. Each ticket includes one drink ticket, allowing guests to indulge in the evening's festivities, accompanied by heavy Hors d'oeuvres. This creates an unforgettable evening of music, dance, art, and nostalgia at An Artists’ Affair: Art at Dark.

If you’re unable to attend but would like to make a donation, text the word MAG to 366283.
