Enter the World of Warhol at Palm Springs Art Museum’s upcoming Art Event to be held Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Guests to this Pop Art-fueled spectacle are encouraged to dress in an “anything goes” manner that relates to the enigmatic artist, Andy Warhol; from sixties retro couture to Studio 54 chic, to Andy look-alikes or even black tie. This new event is a precursor and celebration of the major Andy Warhol Prints exhibition at the museum March 3 through May 28.
The “not your typical gala” happening is being presented by the Museum’s Board of Trustees, Museum Associates Council and Co-Chairs Donna MacMillan and Roberta Holland. The event will honor Arlene Schnitzer and Jordan Schnitzer, whose extensive Warhol print collection is featured in the exhibition.
The extravaganza kicks off at 6 p.m. with tantalizing cocktails and appetizers in an area that recreates Warhol’s famed creative workspace, The Factory, featuring a wall of the artist’s iconic Marilyn Monroe prints. Following, guests will proceed to Warhol’s World with a Splash of Studio 54 and will be treated to entertainment that includes multiple unique performances by renowned circus artists arranged especially for this themed event by Fabrice Lemire, Artistic Director of CRYSTAL by Cirque Du Soleil. An elegant dinner with elaborate food stations by Chef Brad Toles of Savoury’s Catering will be served at 7:30 p.m., with dancing continuing into the night.
