Dinner and Dancing
Join the Princeton University Art Museum at our annual benefit gala—Fête de Nuit: A Montparnasse Ball at Princeton.
Drawing inspiration from the Parisian avant-garde and the artistic community that flourished in the cafés and studios of the city’s Montparnasse quarter during the 1910s and 1920s, Fête de Nuit celebrates a creative utopia and the renowned artists it inspired. The 2018 Gala will revel in the cuisine, music, and ambience of this vibrant era.
From the dawn of art collecting at Princeton in the 1750s, the Museum has grown to be one of the most vital and comprehensive on any college campus. Funds raised through the Gala—our only annual fundraising event—generate essential financial resources for the wide-ranging exhibitions and education and outreach programs the Museum delivers throughout the year to some 200,000 on-site visitors. Thanks to your advocacy and support, the Museum thrives as a gateway to a world of art, where admission is always free.
Online ticketing will be made available mid-November.
