VMFA’s signature biennial party celebrating the cultural vibrancy that the museum brings to the commonwealth
Inspired by this year’s special exhibitions devoted to French art—Van Gogh, Manet, and Matisse: The Art of the Flower and Rodin: Evolution of a Genius—ARTrageous 2015 will transport you to the Belle Époque. Fête des Artistes evokes the glittering nightlife of Paris when Toulouse Lautrec’s posters drew revelers to the Moulin Rouge, exhibits of African tribal art inspired a young Pablo Picasso, and the cafes buzzed with discussions of Baudelaire and Zola. Bring your joie de vivre to the beautiful Robins Sculpture Garden on Saturday, September 12 for dancing, creative cocktails, and delectable bites.
Kick off ARTrageous 2015 with an exclusive UGK dinner. For one night only, Amuse’s chef, Greg Haley and Underground Kitchen will join forces to create a culinary adventure for 50 lucky ARTrageous guests. The details are a secret, of course, but you can be certain the menu and the experience will be memorable. Tickets for this 5:30 p.m. dinner are sure to go fast so don’t delay if you want to attend.
Proceeds from this event will support ARTshare, a major digital initiative to make VMFA’s collections and educational resources available to audiences throughout Virginia and the world.
