Party in the Garden to honor Michael Lynne, Anna Marie Shapiro and Edgar Wachenheim III. Sponsored by Cartier.

New York NY
This annual benefit to support MoMA provides guests with an elegant sit-down dinner and club-worthy after-party. This year’s musical guest is Santigold, but one thing you can expect at this garden party?
Hip-hop royalty and art museums don’t necessarily go hand in hand, but last year’s event had curators and music fans nodding their heads together with a performance by Kanye West and a surprise drop-in from Jay-Z.
Set in the beloved Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, this special evening benefits the Museum’s general operating fund, supporting our award-winning educational programs and the care, study, and exhibition of the collection.

About Museum of Modern Art
In the late 1920s, three progressive and influential patrons of the arts, Miss Lillie P. Bliss, Mrs. Cornelius J. Sullivan, and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., perceived a need to challenge the conservative policies of traditional museums and to establish an institution devoted exclusively to modern art. They along with additional original trustees A. Conger Goodyear, Paul Sachs, Frank Crowninshield and Josephine Boardman Crane created The Museum of Modern Art in 1929. Its founding Director, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., intended the Museum to be dedicated to helping people understand and enjoy the visual arts of our time, and that it might provide New York with “the greatest museum of modern art in the world.”
