National Building Museum Gala, 2016. by Yassine El Mansouri.

Save the date for the Museum’s presentation of the 2017 Honor Award on Tuesday, May 16, celebrating Brookfield Properties and the National Endowment for the Arts for their profound commitment and lasting contributions to public art, community building, and creative place-making. We warmly invite you to join these valued national leaders in celebrating places whose distinctive identities make them memorable, lasting, and cherished.

The Museum will also be paying special tribute to Richard T. Anderson, President Emeritus of the New York Building Congress and Paula Poundstone of NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” will be returning to once again be our special guest emcee for the evening.

It promises to be a lively, witty, and wonderfully enjoyable event. Garden Party attire is encouraged.
