Art Ball

The Art Ball celebrates Newark’s collective energy and showcases pride in our state’s largest fine art museum. A cornerstone of New Jersey’s cultural calendar, it brings together business leaders, entrepreneurs, arts advocates, and museum supporters for an evening of cocktails, live music, dancing, and a seated dinner in the Museum’s galleries.

Annual awards are presented to artists and community leaders whose visionary thinking, generosity, and advocacy benefits the Museum and the broader arts community.  Art Ball provides crucial support to the Museum’s special exhibitions and permanent galleries, as well as its outstanding programming for families, adults,  community organizations,  school groups, educators, and visitors with disabilities at little to no cost.

This year’s Art Ball will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024.
