Our signature event celebrated not only the museum’s 50th anniversary, but the opening of a very special exhibition, Conversations: African and African American Artworks in Dialogue, featuring works from the collections of the National Museum of African Art and Drs. Camille and Bill Cosby.
Guests to the gala had the unprecedented opportunity to view Conversations and artworks from the never-before-exhibited Cosby Collection prior to its official opening.
Guests attending the 50th Anniversary Gala will included international business leaders, foreign ministers, ambassadors, thought leaders, lobbyists, philanthropists, and leaders of U.S. government agencies.
