Main Event 14

SCI-Arc’s annual gala, Main Event returns to campus in its 14th iteration Saturday, April 28th, 2018.

April 28, 2018 at 7:00pm

Guest of honor Frances Anderton, host of KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture, will be celebrated for her work expanding the public dialogue surrounding architecture, design, and urbanism through her unique blend of journalistic experience in politics and current affairs as well as design.

This year, SCI-Arc’s Board of Trustees will host a ticketed Pre-Gala VIP Dinner prepared by Chef Walter Manzke of République. Main Event 14 will include a sneak-peek at the specially curated student works of Spring Show 2018, a cocktail reception, and an auction filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Each spring, Main Event brings together leading architects and designers, developers, contractors, architectural patrons and philanthropists, as well as alumni to celebrate SCI-Arc’s reputation as a world-renowned center of innovation and incomparable dedication to educating architects who imagine and shape the future.

Join us in a celebration unlike any other, which raises funds for SCI-Arc’s Scholarship Endowment.
