2022 McKim Medal Gala
We are deeply grateful to our faithful supporters who have, once again, ensured the McKim Medal Gala will be a success. Through our friends, we have achieved full capacity at the event and as a result, are not able to offer additional tickets or tables at this time. Thank you for your interest.
The next McKim Medal Gala will take place at the Villa Aurelia in Rome on June 8, 2022.
Cecilia Alemani, the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director and Chief Curator of High Line Art, and Artistic Director of the 59th Venice Biennale
Matteo Garrone, Filmmaker and Producer
One of the highest-profile cultural events of the social calendar in Rome, the annual McKim Medal Gala honors individuals whose work internationally, most particularly in Italy and in the United States, has contributed significantly to the arts and humanities, and whose life exemplifies creative and intellectual exchange across the arts, scholarship, language, and culture.
Proceeds from the evening support Academy programs and American, Italian, and international artists and scholars, providing them with important opportunities to pursue their individual studies, to participate in and contribute to international discourse in their fields and disciplines, and to gain experience that will be invaluable throughout their careers.
The McKim Medal was designed by Cy Twombly and is handcrafted by BVLGARI.
