On Saturday, November 8, the Albright-Knox hosted a special fundraiser celebrating the opening of two very special exhibitions: Giving up One's Mark: Helen Frankenthaler in the 1960s and 1970s and Imperfections By Chance: Paul Feeley Retrospective, 1954–1966.
The evening included a cocktail reception in the Sculpture Court of the 1905 Albright Building and dinner in the galleries of the 1905 Albright Building. Following a menu created by the culinary masters of Delaware North, guests danced the night away in the Sculpture Court. Jeremy Blake’s Mod Lang, 2001, served as the backdrop and bridged both exhibitions with its color field influence.
The Albright-Knox extends its sincerest appreciation to Presenting Sponsor Delaware North, Möet Hennessy USA, The Floristry, and Advantage Technology Integration. Thank you also to all of the evening’s guests who attended and supported this event, which is so vital to the museum.
This celebration also marked the release of the Giving up One's Mark: Helen Frankenthaler in the 1960s and 1970s exhibition catalogue, which is available in Shop AK. Giving up One's Mark: Helen Frankenthaler in the 1960s and 1970s and Imperfections By Chance: Paul Feeley Retrospective, 1954–1966 are on view at the Albright-Knox through Sunday, February 15, 2015.
All proceeds benefit the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
