Artpace will be celebrating their 21st birthday and hosting their annual fundraiser gala, The Happening, on the same night this April. The Happening helps benefit Artpace’s highly regarded artists’ residencies, exhibitions, and community education programs. This event will take place on April 9th from 6 to 11:30 p.m. at Artpace. This year’s performers are The Dolls – DJ Mia Moretti and Violinist Margot.
The Dolls are a New York City-based duo known for their exciting performances at art and fashion shows around the world. They create remixes of current works and original compositions to perform and gather inspiration from every destination they visit on their global tours.
The theme of the Artpace Happening will be “21 Club Speakeasy” in honor of Artpace’s 21st birthday. The gala will honor Fairfax Dorn and Virginia Lebermann, founders of Ballroom Marfa, for their contribution to contemporary art in Texas. This is Artpace’s biggest fundraiser; it helps innovative artists, provides unique and free exhibitions, and serves more than 14,000 students through educational outreach.
