Join us for an unforgettable evening of eclectic elegance, fierce fashion, and exquisite experiences!


We are very excited to announce that Young Audiences of Western New York will be holding a gala fundraiser this fall! After many years’ absence, we are bringing the gala back to celebrate a monumental year. YA-WNY has overcome many obstacles in 2017/2018 and we have surmounted many challenges to emerge a stronger, more focused organization.

The Pop Art Bash! is THE funky formal, inter-imagine-active, visual and performing arts happening of the season bringing together community leaders, artists, and everyone who wishes to celebrate our mission of engaging young people in the arts to create extraordinary adults.


When: Friday, November 16 

Time: 6:00pm – 10pm, VIP Reception 5:00pm – 6:00pm

Where: The Statler Hotel – 107 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14202

Attire: Funky Formal!


The Pop Art Bash! will feature live entertainment and creation stations showcasing our Young Audiences Teaching Artists, sumptuous tasting tables, delicious libation stations, live and silent auctions, and complimentary valet parking.

This year, we will be recognizing the amazing work and tremendous support of two individuals who have contributed to the mission of Young Audiences and have positively impacted arts-in-education in Buffalo and throughout Western New York:

  • Michele Agosto, Buffalo Public Schools Supervisor of Art Education
  • Annette Daniels-Taylor, Young Audiences Teaching Artist

Your support will help bring programs to children throughout the eight counties of Western New York.
