Save the Date - The 2020 Gala is May 2

It’s never too early to plan for a big celebration. Save the date of May 2, 2020, for the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's annual fundraising gala.

Chaired by Lynn and Brian Good and presented by Duke Energy, all proceeds support the museum’s operating costs, including exhibitions, public programs, and community outreach programs that have quality-of-life benefits for Charlotte citizens typically underserved by the visual arts sector.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2020.
