Metropolitan Museum of Art Honors Amy Rose and Adam R. Rose
Posted On December 7, 2015
The Metropolitan Museum of Art honored Amy Rose and Adam R. Rose at its annual Real Estate Council Benefit, which was held on Monday, November 16, 2015. More than 650 people attended the event, which raised $2.48 million dollars to support the Met’s education programs – a record for the Real Estate Council Benefit. The event first occurred in 1996, when it raised roughly $360,000.
“Amy and I were delighted to be recognized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and we’re pleased the evening generated such meaningful support for the institution and its valuable programming,” said Adam R. Rose, co-president of Rose Associates.
The benefit was held in the Museum’s Great Hall and alongside the iconic Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing. Daniel Brodsky, chairman of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, delivered the evening’s opening remarks. Brodsky recalled how Frederick P. Rose, Adam’s father and Amy’s uncle, was instrumental in founding the Real Estate Council in 1981. He went on to credit the evening’s large turnout and record proceeds to Amy and Adam’s deep involvement in New York’s cultural and civic landscape.
William C. Rudin, CEO of Rudin Management Company, also spoke. Rudin discussed how the Rose and Rudin families have long supported the Metropolitan Museum and other New York City institutions.
“As third-generation leaders of Rose Associates, Amy and Adam are continuing their family’s legacy of philanthropy and civic leadership in New York and beyond,” said Rudin. “It is a privilege to honor them.”
The money raised at the benefit will support a variety of programs at the Met that are designed to allow people to further their education through the arts. The programs provide ongoing opportunities for students and educators to closely explore objects in the Museum's collection. Among other things, the Met offers “short courses” throughout the year and special “summer institutes” that allow for extended learning.
“I am grateful to be connected to an institution that makes such a positive impact on the lives of so many people,” said Amy Rose, co-president of Rose Associates. “Adam and I thank everyone who attended the benefit for their support and generosity. We’ll always remember this special night at the Met.”
