On September 15, 1988, the James A. Michener Art Museum first opened its doors to the public. Evolving from its humble roots as a local arts center, the Michener has become a cultural cornerstone for the community—a repository for the unique artistic traditions and legacy of Bucks County and the surrounding Delaware Valley region.

This year—exactly thirty years to the day the Museum first opened its doors—the Michener will mark the auspicious occasion with 30 Years: An Evening in Black & White. Join us at the Michener for a black tie evening in two acts, which will include a brief welcome ceremony, followed by the White Out Party and the Black Out Ball.

Tickets are now available at a price of $275 per person for the entire evening or $100 per person for the Black Out Ball only.
