Corporate Sponsorship | Through the Decades Gala

Tags: Gallery News


On behalf of our staff, Board of Directors, Gala Committee, and all members of our community, we graciously invite you to participate as a Corporate Sponsor to ACG’s Through the Decades Gala. By joining as a Corporate Sponsor, you are at the forefront of the regional arts movement in supporting Albany Center Gallery to continue to bring “more art everywhere, together!”

This year's annual Gala fundraiser will take place in-person at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the Kenmore Ballroom in Downtown Albany. The theme is Through the Decades, a celebration of all the decades ACG has been a part of (70s, 80s, 90s, etc.) as we continue to commemorate our 45th Anniversary and full history with art and community.


For 45 years, ACG has been promoting and exhibiting art produced by the region’s emerging and established artists as well as engaging, enriching, and inspiring the community to appreciate the importance of art. Thousands of the area’s finest contemporary artists have exhibited at Albany Center Gallery, and many of the artists gain national and international recognition afterwards. Our reach extends beyond the walls of the Gallery, working with the community through public art projects and art programming. Through these pursuits, the Gallery consistently reaches over 50,000 individuals annually.

 

To ensure your business name appears as a Corporate Sponsor on gala promotional materials, please complete and return THIS Sponsorship Form no later than October 1. The deadline for recognition in the program book is October 22. Corporate Sponsors also will be recognized on ACG’s website and event social media promotion.

Thank you for your valued support. We look forward to welcoming you and your business’s representatives to an exciting evening. We hope you will join us Through the Decades.
