Gala 2012: A Salute to Gary Vikan!

After 27 years of service, including 18 as director, we salute the achievements of Gary Vikan at the Walters Art Museum. The museum today is a very different one from the one he entered. We who care deeply about this jewel and about our community recognize him with gratitude.

Join us for cocktails on the court, dinner in the galleries, a preview of the exhibition Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe and dancing into the night. This year, a portion of the Gala proceeds support free access to the Walters Art Museum. Tickets are $500 per person; special tables are available.

*Only a few seats remain! To purchase tickets or a table, please contact Anne Berman: 410-547-9000 ext. 212 or
