The Art Omi NYC Benefit will take place on Wednesday June 6, 2018. This annual evening of dinner, theater, art and networking in Manhattan supports the exciting and important work happening every day at Art Omi. Following dinner, you will have a choice of attending Dear Even Hansen (SOLD OUT), Carousel, or Three Tall Women! Click here for more information on these plays. After the show, guests are invited to the home of Art Omi Founder and Chair Francis Greenburger and Isabelle Autones for a dessert and champagne reception.

Hosted by Francis Greenburger, Chairman of Art Omi and Chairman and CEO of Time Equities Inc. and Jesse Westbrook, Executive Member of JWest Contractors.

Art Omi is pleased to honor Sean Kelly with the Omi Arts Leadership Award, whose prestigious gallery is a strong advocate of internationalism and diversity within the arts. Through his work with PEN America, Mr. Kelly champions creative expression and free speech. We applaud these shared values, which are directly in line with the mission of Art Omi.

Art Omi believes that exposure to internationally diverse creative voices fosters tolerance and respect, raises awareness, inspires innovation, and ignites change. By forming community with creative expression as its common denominator, Art Omi creates a sanctuary for the artistic community and the public to affirm the transformative quality of art.

If you're unable to attend in person, your support for Art Omi would be deeply appreciated. Please register by filling out the online response form.
