Join openhousenewyork for an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and auction at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, honoring Richard Meier, a member since 1983, recipient of the Academy’s 2008 gold medal in architecture and strong supporter of OHNY.

The Academy is opening up its private spaces to OHNY guests, offering us a rare opportunity to visit and tour the Academy’s grand beaux-arts buildings, with special access to the founding members’ room, the portrait gallery, the private library, its large terrace-level exhibition space, and a truly breath-taking 730-seat auditorium designed by Cass Gilbert. The gala includes a silent auction featuring works by contemporary artists and designers as well as private tours of several New York iconic landmarks.
