On Saturday, October 5, 2013, the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art will present its seventh annual Splendor Gala at the Connecticut Convention Center.

We are anticipating that the gala will again be sold-out with close to 500 guests representing the Museum's top supporters and members of the corporate community. The evening features live and silent auctions including artwork from many important artists, cocktails, fine dining and dancing.

Our previous six Galas were overwhelming successes netting $1.5 million to support important programs such as free transportation and admission to the Museum for all Hartford Public School students. The benefits of the Gala continue each month as 500-800 visitors now frequent the Museum for free during Second Saturdays for Families.

We hope to see you all at this year's gala on October 5, 2013.
