What: Meadows Museum Masterpiece Gala host committee reception
Where: Pilar and Jay Henry’s Dallas home
PC Moment: At a recent cocktail party, more than 40 supporters and members of the Meadows Museum Masterpiece Gala committee toasted the upcoming inaugural soirée, slated for Saturday, October 13 at the museum on SMU’s campus.
SMU president R. Gerald Turner saluted guests before Mark Roglán, the Linda and William Custard Director of the Meadows Museum, revealed that proceeds from the event will help launch an endowment fund for the museum’s future director of education position.
Called “The Color of Dreams,” the gala’s theme was inspired by eccentric artist Salvador Dalí, whose exhibit “Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929-1936” is concurrently on view — a collection of nearly two dozen small-scale paintings he created during the revolutionary Surrealism movement.
“Aliyah,” a limited-edition set of Dalí lithographs, will also be on view in the museum for the first time. The prints are a donation from the Custards to recognize the Honorable Janet Pollman Kafka in her 20th year as Honorary Consul of Spain in Dallas.
Sponsorships for the gala (ranging from $2,500 to $50,000) are available now. Individual tickets become available next month. For more details, contact [email protected], call 214.768.4189, or click here.
