The Menil Collection’s much talked about spring party returns on Thursday, March 26, 2020 with the theme Studio Menil Presents: Paint by Numbers. This lively evening will pay homage to those beloved painting kits from the 1950s.

The Menil’s southernmost exhibition space, Richmond Hall, will be transformed for the occasion. The evening will include colorful cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, an artfully-presented dinner, accompanied by a remarkable entertainment experience.

Tables are available at three levels, $12,500; $16,000; and $25,000; with limited tickets at $1,250 each. Proceeds from Studio Menil Presents: Paint by Numbers directly support the Menil Collection’s operations, the maintenance of the museum and neighborhood, and the organization of world-class exhibitions and programming. It is thanks to your generosity that the Menil Collection remains free of charge to all visitors.
