Menil Contemporaries Holiday Party

Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 – Friday, Dec. 7, 2018

08:00 PM – 11:00 PM


On December 7, Menil Contemporaries will celebrate the holidays with a festive tribute to the reinstallation of the permanent collection. Guests will kick up their heels with minimalist hors d’oeuvres and maximalist cocktails, surrounded by the greatest hits of the Menil Collection. All galleries and bars will stay open until 11 p.m. and tickets are priced at $75 for members and $95 for non-members.

The tinsel on top? This year, all Menil Contemporaries who join at the Partner level will receive two complimentary tickets to the holiday party. Contemporaries Partners are exclusively invited to a private collection visit, rotating special event, and all annual events open to general members and Contemporaries Enthusiast members.

Come join us at all of the exciting events we have planned this year, and we can’t wait to raise a glass with you in December!
