About Our Events

The Kitchen hosts two special fundraising events each year - a Fall Art Auction and a Spring Gala Benefit. These immensely popular events raise a significant portion of The Kitchen's annual presenting budget and so are essential to our work supporting emerging, established, and under-recognized artists in the creation of vanguard new work. For more information about an upcoming event, please contact Kerry Scheidt at (212) 255 5793 ext. 20 or e-mail.
