CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Art Museum is pleased to announce its biennial gala, to be held at Cincinnati’s Music Hall, on Friday, November 2, 2018 from 6–10 p.m.

Guests will enjoy an elegant evening of cocktails, dinner and a live auction while celebrating the highly anticipated upcoming special exhibition The Fabric of India, on view at the Cincinnati Art Museum from October 19, 2018–January 6, 2019.

The biennial gala is an opportunity for the Greater Cincinnati community, supporters and friends with an interest in the art museum to give back to the organization.

“To say that we are excited about this theme and exhibition, The Fabric of India, with all its cultural diversity, spirituality, beauty and vibrancy, is an understatement. We hope you will join us to share the spirit of India to benefit our beloved Cincinnati Art Museum,” said co-chairs Dulany Anning, Amy DeWitt and Tracy Hartmann.
