On Saturday, January 17, the Pérez Art Museum Miami will host its annual event, The Art of the Party Presented by Louis Vuitton. The evening will consist of three “mini events,” each providing guests with a unique look at PAMM’s galleries and new architectural space. The event is the museum’s most important fundraiser, raising proceeds to benefit its large education program, which has served more than 80,000 adults and children since December 2013.
Guests are invited to attend one, two or all of the evening’s adaptations of “the art of the party.” Each segment will have a Brazilian flair, complete with authentic Brazilian food and entertainment. Cuisine served at the Chef’s Table and Supper Club segments will be prepared under the direction of Rio de Janeiro-based chef Thomas Troisgos, who is traveling to Miami specifically for the event. Popular Brazilian band, Batuke Samba Funk, will perform a live waterfront concert featuring Pee Wee Ellis, saxophone player and bandleader for James Brown.
The evening begins at 7 p.m. with “Chef’s Table,” an al fresco seated dinner. Cocktails will be served in the Podhurst Lobby and on the Lobby Terrace. Tables of 10 are available for $25,000 or $50,000; table hosts at the $50,000 level will receive a limited edition print by artist Beatriz Milhazes.
At 8:30, the evening will continue with “Supper Club” dinner lounge. Seating will be located throughout PAMM’s special exhibition galleries. Private seating for up to 12 guests will include a dedicated butler providing table cocktail service. Chef Troisgros will present a variety of culinary delights for guests to enjoy as they dance under the stars. Surprise entertainment will be “popping up” in different forms throughout the evening. Individual tickets are available for $1,000 each.
The event concludes with dancing, dessert and cocktails at the “Remix” after party. The West Portico and Knight Plaza will become a Brazilian dance club filled with the music of Batuke Samba Funk and Pee Wee Ellis. Individual tickets are available for $250 each.
