The Alice Austen House Annual Gala supports our education initiatives and all of the arts programming we offer throughout the year.

Gala &


Dancing Under the Stars
Saturday, June 14, 2014
6:30 - 11:30 p.m.

The Alice Austen House Annual Gala is an elegant evening on the waterfront grounds of the historic home. Join us for dining al fresco, taking in the spectacular views of the Verrazano Bridge and Lower Manhattan, listening to great music, and dancing the night away under the stars. This year everyone is a star!

The Gala will premiere the newly restored Clear Comfort, culminating a year-long preservation effort through a major grant secured with your votes. We hope you will join us to celebrate this achievement.

This year, we are proud to honor Mark Irving from Con Edison. We have also established the Alice Austen Award for the Advancement of Photography, presented to photographer Susan Meiselas

Your support of our annual gala enables the museum to continue our mission to promote Alice Austen’s photographs, life, and home through our exhibitions, events, and education programs. 

Individual tickets are $175. Sponsorship packages include the Clear Comfort Circle at $500, which is two tickets and a full page digital ad with special recognition. Tickets and journal ads may be purchased online below. For more information and for major sponsorship opportunities please contact Sarah Moddel at 718-816-4506 x 17 or email
