Safety First **

The Spring Gala also marks the first time in more than a year that our wonderful community is invited to celebrate together at Wave Hill. Safety is our top priority and all CDC and state protocols will be strictly followed. If you are not able to attend in person, you can celebrate with us virtually.

* Battle! Hip Hop in Armor was originally commissioned by MetLiveArts in collaboration with the Arms and Armor department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

** The safety of our guests is of utmost importance. While we are optimistic about hosting an in-person event, we continue to closely monitor the ongoing pandemic and related restrictions and protocols to allow for a safe gathering for all. As a result, the event may be subject to change, including postponement or cancellation, and no food or drinks will be permitted on site.
