The renowned Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is getting ready to host its highly-anticipated, fifth annual Art of the Party, on Saturday, March 9th, 2019. The fabulous affair is the museum‘s largest fundraiser of the year, and this year will honor acclaimed artist Christo, whose monumental exhibitionChristo and Jeanne-Claude: Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980-83: A Documentary Exhibition—was just recently on view at the museum. Additionally, the event will pay tribute to avid philanthropists and supporters of the arts, Dorothy and Aaron Podhurst, who have remained dedicated to growing the PAMM since its inception 35 years ago. Art of the Party Co-Chairs include Sandra and Anthony Tamer and Haute 100-listers Arlene and Wayne Chaplin.
