2020 Gala & Glass Auction – Artist Donations
Since NLM opened its doors 20 years ago, we have welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world to learn about past and present heroes of liberty. In addition to creating engaging and innovative exhibitions, programs, and events, the NLM has also developed a one-of-a-kind educational program that teaches young people how to become empathetic and responsible future leaders. Proceeds from the Gala & Glass Auction allow us to keep doing this great work.
We’d be delighted if we could count you among the generous and caring artists who support the NLM by donating a work of art for our 21st annual Gala & Glass Auction. Your donation will also give you the opportunity to showcase your art to 400+ of our region’s top business leaders, art collectors, press, influencers, and philanthropists who attend our gala each year. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Below are photos from last year’s Glass Auction and Gala.

At the end of each school year, the NLM's Young Heroes Outreach Program, which brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into area schools, holds a grand celebration to showcase the Social Action Projects created by all of the participating schools. This year the celebration was a VIRTUAL event and their projects are available for viewing on this website!
