MCKIM MEDAL GALA (ROME) - Corporate Members

For more information about Corporate Membership and the McKim Medal Gala, please contact Inga Clausing, Development Officer.

This year’s Gala will be held at the magnificent Villa Aurelia in June and will honor two individuals whose work internationally— most particularly in Italy and in the United States — exemplifies creative and intellectual exchange across the arts, scholarship, language, and culture.

Corporate supporters are key to the success of the McKim Medal Gala and they enjoy many benefits, including invitations to exclusive events and special rates for corporate functions at Villa Aurelia.

Each year, the McKim Medal Gala raises funds to enable talented Italian artists and scholars to join the Academy community as Italian Fellows.  Since the first McKim Medal Gala in 2005, more than 50 Italian Fellowships have been awarded.
