…Party in the Garden benefits MoMA’s Annual Fund and the maintenance of The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. The event also supports the Museum’s general operating fund, helping to make possible the Museum’s education programs and the care, study, and exhibition of its collection.”
MoMA’s annual ‘Party in the Garden’ fundraiser returns on June 1, and this year the performer for the gala afterparty is Swedish pop artist Robyn, with a DJ set by Matthew Dear to follow. Tickets for just the afterparty are $225 (VIP is $525). To reserve a table to attend the dinner as well ranges from $25,000 to $100,000.
Just two days after the Party in the Garden, Robyn will play Governors Ball in NYC, plus appearances at Boston Calling and Toronto’s Field Trip festival.
