The Art Omi Upstate Benefit aims to raise $150,000 towards commissioning new works for our free Sculpture & Architecture Park, supporting diverse artists in our renowned international residencies, and bringing art education to over 2,000 people yearly through workshops, camps, school visits, and partnerships so that all families have equitable access to the arts.

The evening begins at 5:30 PM with cocktails and live music in the enchanting native garden. Dinner will be a sumptuous feast from wildly innovative Executive Chef Nicole LoBue of The Caboose and Kitty's, followed by a spirited live auction of unique experiences, hosted by Seaforth MacKenzie.
