In the Spring of 2021, the Museum of the City of New York will present its City of Design Award to Arne and Marc Glimcher of the Pace Gallery at its annual Spring Symposium & Luncheon.

The City of Design Award was inaugurated in 2015 to recognize those who have made New York the design capital of the world and who inspire future generations of designers to bring their talents to our great city. Past recipients include Cynthia Rowley, Jonathan Adler, Simon Doonan, Jacques Grange, Ralph Pucci, Peter Marino, and Elizabeth Graziolo.

This afternoon luncheon raises funds that allow the Museum to continue to provide content-rich exhibitions that celebrate and interpret the city and serve more than 50,000 children and educators each year through our Frederick A.O. Schwarz Education Center.
