NBAF’s gala is the premier event of the Atlanta summer social season! The hallmarks of the annual gala are lively entertainment and great performances, a live and silent auction of unique items presented in a spectacular venue where hundreds of our supporters and fun-loving patrons come together to celebrate and to sustain NBAF’s operations, programs and rich cultural legacy.
Fine Art + Fashion annually raises funds for NBAF’s general operations and programs through an ongoing and unique partnership with Neiman Marcus, the lead sponsor. Patrons and lovers of art and fashion come together for a fun-filled fashion show, which is the highlight of the Atlanta season. FA+F also includes an award segment that recognizes and supports artistic talent with three competitive scholarships given to emerging fashion design students of African descent, a visual artist whose work has been recognized by the art world and by NBAF and a designer extraordinaire who is so recognized by Neiman Marcus.
