What: Contemporary Arts Museum Houston Gala and Art Auction launch themed “Secret Underground”

Where: BeDesign, the exclusive resource for Italian furnishings and accessories

PC Moment: BeDesign entrepreneurs Adrian Dueñas and Marcelo Saenz are joining forces with their besties Carrie and Sverre Brandsberg-Dahl in chairing the CAMH gala on April 30. So what better place to ratchet up enthusiasm for the art-filled night than at BeDesign in Montrose?

The gala chairs joined CAMH executive director Hesse McGraw in welcoming the cutting edge crowd of 130, reminding that proceeds from the gala fund the museum’s groundbreaking exhibitions, public programs, community outreach and free admission.

The buzz was on about the gala that will be played out in the museum, which will be transformed into a tableau reminiscent of the world’s trendiest nightclubs. In addition to the silent and live art auctions and dinner, there will be an exclusive performance previewing the upcoming exhibition Mariah Garnett: Dreamed This Gateway.

The fun gears up beginning at 10 pm when After Party chair Adel Sadek of CIEL Restaurant + Lounge will lead guests to the CAMH’s lower level where BeDesign and Ciel will create a VIP lounge for top ticket holders and where everyone can belly up to the playfully edgy bar fixtures from the Houston, Sie Haben Ein Problem! installation created by Austrian artists Richard Hoeck and Paul Renner.
