Save the date for the Museum's presenation 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 Anderson, former president 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.

Since 1986, the National Building Museum has presented its Honor Award to leaders who shaped America’s heritage, defined its culture, developed its communities, and crafted its built environment. Individually, they advanced the building arts and sciences. Collectively, their legacy is profound.
Each year’s celebration brings together the full spectrum of those in the building industry as well as cultural, corporate, and political leaders from around the country and raises critical support for the Museum's acclaimed exhibitions, youth education initiatives, public programs and family festivals. This gala is the Museum's largest fundraiser of the year and a celebration not only of the Honor Award recipients' accomplishments, but also of the Museum's unique educational mission.
