2023 Annual Benefit Auction & Dinner

Honoring Kelly Baum, Carroll Janis, and Veronica Ryan
Thursday, October 19, 2023

Auction from 6-8pm at the New York Studio School, 8 W 8th Street
Dinner from 8:15-10pm at Loring Place, 21 W 8th Street

The New York Studio School cordially invites you to our 2023 Annual Fall Benefit. Your generous participation champions the School as a center of high-caliber education within a vibrant art community. On behalf of the School, we would be honored by your participation in this year’s Fall Benefit.

This year, we will be honoring three outstanding forces in the art world this year: Kelly Baum, Director of the Des Moines Art Center; Carroll Janis, art historian; and Veronica Ryan, the acclaimed sculptor. Please join us at the School on Thursday, October 19th for cocktails and our annual silent auction, followed by dinner at the restaurant Loring Place.

We invite you to be part of the Benefit Committee by purchasing a sponsorship package. The Annual Benefit is the School’s primary fundraising event, and the funds raised directly support the School’s programming and our student body. As we continue to grow and look to the future, we count on you, our treasured community, to help sustain our momentum. We would be honored to celebrate with you this October!
