Glenn Close to be honored at the Museum’s annual gala Salute

Monday, December 3, 2018 at 583 Park Avenue

Glenn Close is one of the most acclaimed actresses of our time, with nominations for six Academy Awards, twelve Golden Globes, twelve Emmys, and four Tonys. Whatever the role, from her star-making performances in The Big Chill and Fatal Attraction to her unforgettable portrayal of Patty Hewes in Damages, she commands attention through the brilliance and emotional power of her work.

Close will be honored by the Museum at its 32nd annual Salute on Monday, December 3 at 583 Park Avenue. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, and an award presentation featuring clips of career highlights introduced by her friends and colleagues.

She joins the ranks of past honorees who have received the Museum’s Salute including: Annette Bening, Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Robin Williams, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman, Steve Martin, Julianne Moore, Al Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Jimmy Stewart.

The Museum will also present the film series Getting Close: Ten Great Performances by Glenn Close, November 23–December 2. In 2005, Glenn Close participated in a discussion at the Museum. Listen to it here.

The Salute will help support the Museum’s exhibitions, screenings, and education and community engagement programs, which serve youth and adults, and children and their families, most of whom are residents of the most ethnically diverse region in the world, Queens.

Individual tickets to the event start at $1,500. For more information or to reserve your ticket, please contact Event Associates at 212 245 6570.
