Our annual Village of Dreams Gala is being hosted June 16th, here on our beautiful Cape Cod campus, in an open-air tent under the stars. At Riverview, we dream big and are committed to creating the best environment possible for our students.

This year, our event is raising funds to support and expand Riverview’s commitment to the Arts. We embrace the opportunity to provide exceptional programming for our exceptional students from the moment they get up in the morning, until the moment they go to sleep at night. Enhancing our Arts programs hold unique benefits and possibilities for our students that span far beyond the classroom. The Arts are an avenue to discover and develop passions, decrease stress, and increase self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-expression. Artistic expression provides our students with voices to communicate without limitation, restriction, or worries of being judged. Put simply, the Arts promote an environment where “mistakes” are viewed as opportunities to learn and grow, leading to the most exciting results. When given a creative environment to externally express internal feelings, we help to improve the overall health and well-being of the “whole student” in countless ways.

Each year, we rely on the generosity of our donors to help us reach our goals. We ask that you please consider supporting the Riverview Village of Dreams Gala with an auction donation and/or an event sponsorship. Each donation directly impacts our ability to make so much possible for our students.

2023 Dream Makers: Rebecca & Marty Eisenberg

Riverview School is proud to be honoring Rebecca and Marty Eisenberg as this year’s Dream Makers

Marty and Rebecca Eisenberg are alumni parents and long time supporters of Riverview School. Their Daughter Jessie graduated from our GROW program in 2010. For more than a decade, Riverview School has been the grateful recipients of a specially curated rotating art gallery inside our James Center building. This specially selected gallery comes from the private collection of Marty and Rebecca, and infuses culture, dialogue and distinction to our campus. We are grateful for their support and personal commitment to the Arts here at Riverview.

Rebecca and Martin Eisenberg have been collecting contemporary art for over 30 years. Their collection features major works by artists including Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, David Hammons, Rachel Harrison, Mary Heilman, Rashid Johnson, Chris Ofili, Manfred Pernice, Cindy Sherman, and Henry Taylor.

The Eisenberg’s are avid supporters of public art institutions and non-profit organizations in and around New York City. Marty is a member of the Acquisition Committee at the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Committee for Drawings and Prints and the Committee for Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, chairs the board of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and serves on the board of White Columns.
