The pARTy at Phoenix Art Museum

January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Phoenix Art Museum’s signature annual fundraiser, The pARTy, will kickoff on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m. for its widely anticipated exhibition MOVE: The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene. The intimate evening will transform the Museum’s Cummings Great HallammeHall into a spectacular entertainment venue.

Curated by Helen Jean, the Museum’s Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design, the major fashion exhibition showcases colorful, imaginative garments by the late designer and provides an intimate view into his career and process.

The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene is organized by Phoenix Art Museum with the support of Authentic Brands Group, LLC. It is made possible through the generosity of Ellen and Howard C. Katz, Miriam and Yefim Sukhman, KJZZ, Arizona Costume Institute, and the Kelly Ellman Fashion Design Endowment Fund, with additional support from Kimpton Hotel Palomar and the Museum’s Circles of Support and Museum Members.

During the evening, Phoenix Art Museum will also honor Patsy Tarr, president of the 2wice Arts Foundation and the founder and publisher of 2wice magazines and books, who gifted more 300 custom-made Geoffrey Beene ensembles to the Museum in 2020, helping to establish Phoenix Art Museum as one of the nation’s leading institutions with holdings of Beene’s designs, now housed in the institution’s Geoffrey Beene Archive.

The event features:
Cocktails in the Katz Wing for Modern Art
Dinner in Cummings Great Hall
Dessert and dancing
