The Allentown Art Museum’s 2024 Gala Dinner & Auction was held in the galleries on Saturday, April 13, 2024. This annual black-tie event raises vital funds in support of the Museum’s mission to inspire, teach, transform, and engage our community through the arts.

This year’s Gala was a particularly special one for the Museum, with 2024 marking our 90th anniversary. On this important occasion we celebrated longtime Museum supporters Jamie Musselman and Jim Edwards as our 2024 Gala honorees. The couple’s leadership, dedication to education, and substantial record of giving back demonstrate the same commitment to community that has helped the Museum grow and deepen its impact over the decades. Meet our honorees below.

The ambiance of the evening was inspired by the pair of Tiffany stained-glass windows the Museum is in the process of acquiring. These exquisite, historically significant examples of American decorative art will be centerpieces of our collection and help tell the story of the greater Lehigh Valley’s important role in the Industrial Revolution.
