Princeton University Art Museum Annual Benefit Gala | Grit+Glamour: A Basquiat Ball
Join us on Saturday, February 2, 2019, for Grit + Glamour: A Basquiat Ball, the Museum’s Annual Benefit Gala. Inspired by an artist with whose work Princeton has had a long and very special relationship, the theme of this year’s Gala draws upon the creatively explosive downtown art scene of the 1980s in which Jean-Michel Basquiat and his circle—from Keith Haring to Madonna to Andy Warhol—shaped a dynamic street culture that changed both art and the wider American scene. It’s also a New York that has been lost to the past, and so _Grit + Glamour: A Basquiat Ball_also reminds us of the downtown that was, including its style, art, and music. Our sole fundraising event of the year, proceeds from the Gala support the wide range of education and outreach programs that the Museum offers—free of charge—year round.
