This fall, Phoenix Art Museum begins a full year of celebrations leading up to the Museum's 60th anniversary with this year's fall gala, The pARTy in the Garden on Saturday, November 3, 2018. Phoenix Art Museum's official 60th anniversary is November 18, 2019. The kick-off this fall revives the beloved pARTy, an annual Museum gala held from 2007-2015, to honor the past, present, and future of art and community in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Featuring an exclusive inside look at an anniversary-themed fashion installation alongside cutting edge contemporary installations, fine food, drinks, dancing, and the gala's first ever guest of honor, Arizona State University President Michael Crow, The pARTY in the Garden will play an essential role in supporting Phoenix Art Museum. Benefit galas in support of the Museum have raised more than $10.5 million dollars in vital funds supporting exhibition and arts education programs since The pARTy gala began in 2007.
The evening's festivities will begin in the Dorrance Sculpture Garden, areas of which will be transformed into elegant lounges, with custom cocktails courtesy of Arizona Distilling Co. and Codigo 1530. Over the course of the evening, The pARTy will move throughout the Museum featuring iconic fashion ensembles from the Museum's collection from 1959 and 1960, the first years the Museum opened its doors.
Additionally, guests will receive an exclusive viewing of the upcoming exhibition, Ragnar Kjartansson: Scandinavian Pain and Other Myths
. Guests will also be able to view the Museum's recent acquisition of Kjartansson's work, The Visitors
(2012), a highly acclaimed 9-screen video installation that features musicians and singers performing a song written by Asdis Sif Gunnarsdottir, Kjartansson's ex-wife.
A festive dinner will take places served at seated tables in Cummings Great Hall, featuring remarks honoring the commencement of the Museum's 60th anniversary season, and honoring Dr. Michael Crow for his influence in the thriving City of Phoenix and Central Corridor. Following dinner, guests will move back into the Dorrance Sculpture Garden for dessert, drinks, and dancing.
All proceeds from the event will support Phoenix Art Museum, enabling the Museum to open its doors to the community. Black and white cocktail attire is requested. Complimentary valet parking will be provided. Individual tickets begin at $750, with additional benefactor table and underwriter opportunities available at $50,000, $25,000, and $10,000.
