2016 Gala de Arte: Celebrando Nuestras Raices (Celebrating Our Roots)

The National Museum of Mexican Art and presenting sponsor Wintrust Community Banks invite you to join us in support of the Museum’s 2016 Gala de Arte, themed Celebrando Nuestras Raices (Celebrating Our Roots). This exciting event will take place on Friday, May 6th at The Geraghty, a beautiful new venue in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood that will provide a striking space for our one-of-a-kind event that brings together more than 650 Chicagoans, philanthropists and art enthusiasts in support of the Museum.

The National Museum of Mexican Art’s annual Gala de Arte is critical in generating funding that ensures our city continues to boast a world-class museum – a museum that is considered by many to be the most important Mexican art museum in the country and the first accredited member of the American Association of Museums dedicated to Latino Culture. The Museum acts as a virtual bridge to Mexico, allowing us to connect the two countries and the two cultures. Because of the Museum, people in Chicago – and visitors from around the world – have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Mexican heritage, art, and culture as it integrates into the United States of America.
