The Bass Museum of Art, one of Miami Beach’s key cultural landmarks, along with a select group of the city’s leading arts patrons, socialites and tastemakers will host its annual fundraiser, “A Night at the Museum,” on Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The event is expected to attract more than 500 guests who will receive a private preview of Picasso to Koons: The Artist As Jeweler curated by Diane Venet.
While enjoying cocktails & refreshments from Miami Club Rum, Hendrick’s Gin and Perrier with beats by Johnny the Boy, attendees will explore the institution’s new exhibition, Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler. The exhibition, featuring over 200 works by 135 artists is an intimate, often whimsical side of some of the greatest artists of recent times, each offering a singular vision of adornment. The exceptional and little-known works of wearable sculpture will reward viewers with new insights into the creative wellsprings of such artistic giants as Georges Braque, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Louise Nevelson, Anthony Caro, Yoko Ono, Man Ray and Anish Kapoor. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to participate in a silent auction including art, experiences and luxury items ranging from two tickets to the Opera de Monte-Carlo in Monaco with VIP Backstage Tour to two VIP tickets to MTV’s Unplugged and jewelry made by contemporary artists exclusively for “A Night at the Museum.”
