Arts Arena events are designed as international or specifically French-American cultural interactions. The events are free and open to the public; however, reservations are advised, as many events reach capacity and offer standing-room only for those who have not reserved a seat. To guarantee priority seating at all events, please RSVP to rsvp@artsarena.org. Each event is followed by a cocktail reception with the speakers and audience.

Additional special events are reserved for Arts Arena members as part of our ArtsArenaPLUS program. These have included an haute couture fashion show at the residence of the Russian Ambassador to France, a talk by bestselling author Alan Riding about his latest book, at the home of the Director of the Arts Arena, followed by dinner with the author, and a private concert by the Curtis Institute of Music chamber ensemble at a home overlooking the Luxembourg gardens.
