Let us take you Underground for an exciting evening of art and entertainment that promises to be bold and edgy. Join co-chairs Blakely Griggs, Melissa Mithoff, and Katherine Phelps on Friday, April 13, 2018 for CAMH’s Annual Gala and Art Auction.

Enjoy cocktails, a seated dinner, and both live and silent auctions of contemporary artwork, hand-selected by CAMH Director Bill Arning, then cap off the evening with the After Party in the underground lounge.
