This year’s unique event occurs during CATCO’s production of RED, a 2010 Tony Award-winning play that celebrates the life and vision of artist Mark Rothko, and will be held at the Columbus Museum of Art.
The evening begins with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and silent auction followed by a live performance to highlight the musical scores of upcoming CATCO performances and the 2013-14 season announcement. Guests will enjoy the museum’s galleries, including 37 paintings, watercolors and other works featured in Mark Rothko: The Decisive Decade 1940-1950. We are also excited to honor Diana Ferguson at this year’s event.
Gala proceeds benefit CATCO’s mission and work to illuminate the mysteries of our humanity… to transform us whether on stage, in the classroom or in our diverse communities… and to create theater that delights, challenges and transports.
