MoMA PS1 will host its 2022 Benefit Gala on Wednesday, May 18.

The event will be co-chaired by Sarah Arison, Chair of the PS1 Board; Robert Soros, PS1 board member, and Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation. 

For the first time, the MoMA PS1 Benefit Gala will be held on-site in the museum’s Courtyard and will celebrate the institution’s past, present, and future, with an artist-inspired menu by chef Mina Stone, and a special performance by vocalist Baby Rose.
