About the Event

Join Public Art Fund on Thursday, April 12th, at Metropolitan West for an unforgettable evening as we honor the acclaimed artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei whose recent multi-site exhibition Good Fences Make Good Neighbors served as a timely and poetic testament to the vitality of public art and its importance in our civic life.

The Spring Benefit raises vital funds that directly support Public Art Fund’s mission to bring dynamic art to audiences of all ages and backgrounds! For additional information, please contact Public Art Fund’s Senior Development Manager, Devon Caranicas, at [email protected] or (212) 223-7806.
