Step into an evening of enchantment at the White Nights Gala on Saturday, June 22, from 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM, where the galleries of The Museum of Russian Art will be transformed into a realm of wonder and delight, all in support of our vital cultural mission.

White Nights, particularly renowned in Russia and other northern regions, is a mesmerizing phenomenon where daylight lingers long into the night, creating an enchanting atmosphere of perpetual twilight. It’s a time of celebration, inviting everyone to embrace the moment and create memories that linger as long as the twilight itself.

Embracing the essence of this twilight celebration, prepare to be enthralled by a breathtaking light installation that dances across the galleries. Music will fill the air, ranging from the elegant strains of solo violin to lively and spirited folk melodies. Exquisite food, wine, and expertly crafted cocktails are around every corner. Descend to the lower level gallery, where you’ll find a seated lounge adorned with decadent sweets and tea. Explore the marvels of TMORA Shop. You’ll find something special everywhere you look!

As you mingle and explore, don’t miss the chance to bid on unique items in our silent auction, offering captivating travel packages, specially-curated experiences, artisanal treasures, and more. Additionally, indulge in the excitement of our wine pull, where you can select a mystery bottle from our curated collection, each one promising a delightful surprise within. 

You’ll have the opportunity to view two illuminating new exhibitions, Peasant Women of the Russian North: Heritage of a Culture Lost and Women in Soviet Art, where you’ll delve into intricate layers of history through the lens of art and artifacts, offering insights into the lives and enduring influence of women across different epochs. 

Your generosity at the White Nights Gala directly supports The Museum of Russian Art’s valuable educational programs and world-class exhibitions. By attending this event, you help ensure that our museum remains a vibrant hub of learning and cultural enrichment for our community and beyond.
