Artpace depends on the success of our annual gala, The Happening, to sustain our free and dynamic programming. All proceeds benefit Artpace’s residencies and public and educational programming. Artpace firmly believes in the transformative power of creative expression. With your support, Artpace Makes Art Happen.
The Happening will be held on March 23rd, 2019 from 7:30pm-12:00am at Artpace, 445 N Main Avenue. We welcome all friends and supporters of contemporary arts to enjoy a memorable evening of cocktails, a stellar dinner, and a Disko Bomba party on the Artpace rooftop! Please join us and invite your friends and colleagues to DISKOTEKA NITE. You can Make Art Happen by sponsoring a table or tickets.
This year, we are proud to honor MacArthur Fellow and International Artist-in-Residence alum Trevor Paglen for his unprecedented contributions to the art world, and Lee Anthony & J. Travis Capps, Jr. for their steadfast commitment to supporting contemporary artists.
