Adrian Shelby, MAM’s chair of external affairs and longtime Museum supporter, also served as honorary chairwoman. The Leir Charitable Foundations, introduced by Shelby to the Museum, were honored for their continual and transformational support of the Museum. In past years, the Foundations gifted the Museum with Leir Hall, a spectacular three-story room, as well as funded the Cezanne and American Modernism exhibition.

Kicking off the celebration at 6:30 p.m., guests enjoyed passed hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails while browsing and bidding on items in the silent auction. In addition, the night recognized hidden treasures within the Museum. The three exhibitions of the night included Look Now: Modern and Contemporary Art from Private Collections, New Media: New Forms, and Patterns, Systems, Structures: Abstraction in American Art. Many of the pieces came from private collections and were for the first time exhibited at the Museum.

As the night carried on, guests gathered for dinner and a special performance by the Bethany and Rufus Roots Quartet. The performance blended music of the African Diaspora, Native American Prayer, American Spirituals, and ceremonial rhythms. This soul stirring performance led into the final event of the night, a live auction. As guests participated in the live auction, they shared their support for the Museum’s exhibitions and educational program.
