Celebration of India Donor Recognition Dinner and auction

Arthur M. Sackler Gallery | Freer Gallery of Art
Thursday, October 16, 2008

Join us for a glittering evening inspired by Diwali, India's festival of lights. Be transported to the fragrant gardens and opulent palaces of Rajasthan as you enjoy a festive dinner and private viewing of Garden and Cosmos: The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur. Meet His Highness Gaj Singh II, the maharaja of Marwar-Jodhpur, whose ancestral collections are featured in the exhibition. Later in the evening, take part in our Garden and Cosmos Live Auction of fabulous India-themed luxuries.



We are excited to reopen the Freer in October 2017, following a renovation to allow us to better present our art and serve our visitors. The Sackler remains open, with a full lineup of exhibitions and events both in the museum and around DC. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
