The 2023 A2AC Gala was a phenomenal success! Our community’s generosity has left us in awe. With the event surpassing its fundraising goal, we can continue to make visual art accessible for all. Discover the incredible businesses and individuals who made the evening magical below.

The A2AC Gala: Thriving in Transition was held on September 14, 2023, from 5:30 to 10 pm at Venue 4M in Ann Arbor, with proceeds directly supporting the organization’s art education and scholarship program. The event featured a cocktail party with DJ Aaron Batzdorfer and artist Kristen Drozdowski, who created an original work that was auctioned off later during a seated dinner and live auction.

The A2AC Gala would not be possible without the support of the many businesses and individuals who lent a hand, shared their skills, or sponsored this event. We wanted to take a moment to thank all who play a part in this special evening:
