Join us for an evening celebrating some of the most influential artists, arts advocates, and cultural philanthropists of our time. In 1971, to mark its 25th Anniversary, Skowhegan hosted its first Awards Dinner in New York City at the Plaza Hotel. Almost 50 years later, the event remains the School’s single largest annual fundraiser. The evening begins with cocktails, followed by dinner, and culminates with an After-Party featuring two exciting performers, all held in the Cipriani 42nd Street’s iconic location.

All proceeds from the evening benefit Skowhegan, enabling it to successfully run its internationally-celebrated summer residency program, and uphold its need-blind admissions policy. Skowhegan artists are accepted based on their demonstrated talent and potential, not financial circumstance, a meritocratic process that is foundational to Skowhegan’s reputation for supporting the next generation of artists.

Festive attire.
