Illumination Gala Banner

Please join the Trustees and Foundation Board of Directors of the Science Museum of Virginia for our inaugural black tie fundraising gala and the first event in the Museum’s new landmark exhibit and event center, the Dewey Gottwald Center.

The Dewey Gottwald Center is named for an innovator and an inspirational figure in Virginia’s STEM landscape. The building is a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit and will serve as a beacon in the community, sparking curiosity and inspiration in future generations for years to come.

Help us illuminate the Dewey Gottwald Center.
