The Art Show to benefit Henry Street Settlement opens with a Benefit Preview—a glamorous gathering in a beautiful setting featuring intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated presentations before the fair opens to the public. The Benefit Preview is a defining event on New York City’s cultural and social calendar, convening the worlds of art and philanthropy for a deeply meaningful cause.

The Preview is a highly anticipated benefit party with tiered ticketed entry. Guests get a first chance to view the exhibitions while enjoying passed and stationed hors d'oeuvres and an open bar. The event is attended by thousands of national and international collectors, philanthropists, business leaders, museum directors, and curators whose ticket purchases, contributions, and sponsorship provide vital funding for Henry Street programs for New Yorkers in need.

Each year, Henry Street helps nearly 50,000 people heal from trauma, find jobs, thrive in school, find homes, explore their creativity, and so much more. Henry Street is grateful to all our Benefit Preview committees, sponsors, and supporters who help sustain this life changing work.
