Pousette Dart in “Advanced and Irascible”
The Friends of the Georgia Museum of Art’s upcoming biennial gala, Elegant Salute, will appropriately mirror our recent unseasonably warm weather with “A Night of Tropical Splendor.” Inspired by Cole Porter’s song “Begin the Beguine,” the Copacabana-themed party includes dessert and dancing with DJ Mahogany in the sculpture garden. Tropical attire is highly encouraged. As the museum’s most significant fundraising event, proceeds support exhibitions, outreach and year-round educational programming. The deadline to reserve a seat at the catered dinner held earlier in the evening has passed, but tickets to the afterparty can be purchased online at through Jan. 26 at bit.ly/gmoa-es2017.
