All events held at the ZMA are centered around the Ruth V. Zuckerman Pavilion where your guests will be able to enjoy award-winning architecture and memorable artwork. Events also include access to the East Galleries and the exhibition(s) therein, monitored by the highly trained and knowledgeable ZMA staff.  The Pavilion has a complimentary built-in audio system that can play musical recordings of your choosing or amplify presenters.

For an additional charge, the ZMA's Upper Plaza and Henriquez Atrium can be utilized alongside the Pavilion for your event. Choose to add one or both of the spaces to create the best experience possible for you and your guests.

PREMIUM PACKAGES: + Upper Plaza

Upgrade your event to a Premium by adding the Upper Plaza to use with the Pavilion. The Plaza is a private outdoor space that provides additional room for guests and entertainment. Upon request, hosts can have access to the ZMA's vendor to tent the plaza as an elegant solution for weather protection. 
For food service to take place outside, we strongly recommend adding a tent to the plaza.
