More than 80 years ago, Hagerstown native Anna Brugh Singer and her husband, noted American Impressionist painter William Henry Singer, established an art museum and gave the building and 100 works of art to the community with the stipulation that admission be free and that the museum provide a program of public education. The cornerstone was laid July 15, 1930. The museum opened to the public Sept. 16, 1931.
The gala will include a social hour and a four-course dinner under the atrium’s glass ceiling. A silent auction of eight art-related items and experiences will be offered. The money raised will benefit existing programs and help sustain the museum.
