April Match Donation Campaign 

After the cancellation of our annual benefit in April we aimed to raise much-needed funds in order to support our organization and mission. To this end, our visionary founder, Lila Harnett, generously offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, all contributions made during the month of April, up to $15,000. 


Through the incredible generosity of all of you, we received $23,911 through 47 contributions. Inspired by the outpouring of your contributions, Lila Harnett matched the full amount for a total of $47,822! We are truly overwhelmed and touched by the outpouring of support we have received by you and by Lila. A sincere thank you to everyone who donated to this campaign to help ArtTable maintain our commitment to professional women in the arts during this challenging time.

ArtTable Day

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

In 2005, the Mayor of New York City declared ArtTable Day to be April 7 to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of ArtTable’s founding. Now fifteen years on from this proclamation, and during the year of our 40th Anniversary, we’re celebrating ArtTable Day again with a day of national celebration across the country.

We all know that everything has changed–but we are proud to say that the profound strength and vitality of the ArtTable community continues. It will come as no surprise that our resources for doing this work are becoming increasingly limited. But we are confident of our community’s ability to maintain our commitment to professional women in the arts during this challenging time.

Do you have a friend, colleague, sister, or art lover who qualifies for membership? Consider nominating them for ArtTable membership.

This is a great way to celebrate ArtTable day!
