October 26 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
On October 26, 2018, join the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art for the premiere event celebrating the dynamic diverse arts of Africa at the third annual African Art Awards Dinner.
For the past two years, the museum has honored the brightest lights in the arts and arts philanthropy at a black-tie dinner held right on the iconic National Mall. This year, we are proud to announce that we will present awards to the incredible artists Edson Chagas and Wangechi Mutu. We will also be presenting an award to philanthropic honoree, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This year’s awards dinner will feature Touria El Glaoui as our guest speaker and Kwame Onwuachi as our guest chef.”
