Questions about the Gala?
Here are some FAQ's that are helpful:
Q: What is creative black tie? A: We are defining it as relaxed formal with your own flair! “Creative black tie” is the dress code that allows you to have fun. Men, for instance, should feel free to wear a black shirt or a red bow tie—something other than the traditional suit. Women are similarly encouraged to take their look less seriously. Think of creative black tie as trendy black tie.
Q: Where should we park? A: There is a valet parking station on 14th Street in front of The Gallery Event Space. Click here to see a map of available parking in the Power & Light District.

There is a streetcar stop at the corner of 14th & Main, just steps from the entrance to The Gallery Event Space.
