Join us at the Cosmic Gala as we celebrate the brilliant art and science collections of our great museum – 
a “cosmos” of cultural riches! The Newark Museum’s stellar collection of over 100,000 objects represents 
American Art, decorative arts, the arts of Asia, Africa, Native America, ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, 
and the natural sciences – treasures that belong to our citizens and are the foundation of stellar education
Annual Gala

American Art at the Newark Museum is a veritable 
“Milky Way” of stars, one of the most vital collections in the country. Among these treasures is Joseph Stella’s 
great five-panel series, The Voice of the City of New York Interpreted (1920–22), imagining the American city 
as the “center” of the universe, the lights of Broadway shining in the night sky. Asian art has always been part
 of the Newark Museum, from the founding Japanese collection to the worldfamous Tibetan Buddhist altar. 
The everpopular Victorian Ballantine House anchors galleries of jewelry, New Jersey ceramics and contemporary
 glass. African art – both historical and contemporary, spanning the entire continent – is among our nation’s
 oldest and most important collections. The Newark Museum offers unique opportunities for “STEAM” (science, 
technology, engineering, art and mathematics) education through the Victoria Hall of Science, the Dreyfuss 
Planetarium, and the new MakerSpace, where if you think it, you can make it!

The Newark Museum, Gala Chair Dave Barger and the Benefit Committee are honored and thrilled that Mary
 Pat Christie, First Lady of New Jersey, has generously agreed to support this special celebration of the universe 
of the Newark Museum as Honorary Chair. Come to the Cosmic Gala and enjoy our universe as we honor the
 legacy, excellence and future of the Newark Museum – New Jersey’s favorite museum of art, technology and
