Miranda & Richard Gill, Chairs

Artpace depends on the success of our annual gala, The Happening, to sustain our free and dynamic programming. All proceeds benefit Artpace’s residencies and public and educational programming. Artpace firmly believes in the transformative power of creative expression. With your support, Artpace Makes Art Happen.

The Happening will be held on March 21st, 2020 at Artpace, 445 N Main Avenue. We welcome all friends and supporters of contemporary arts. Please join us and invite your friends and colleagues to our 25th Anniversary celebration. You can Make Art Happen by sponsoring a table or tickets.


This year, we are proud to honor our founder: artist, collector and philanthropist Linda Pace.
