The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) has become the most visited museum in Canada. We are so lucky to have this establishment at proximity! In the past few years, they have focused on increasing the youths (25-45 years old) commitment to the arts by hosting their now well-known and continuously sold out Unplugged events. This time we are invited to the Mapplethorpe event.
At the end of every major exhibition, a themed festive cocktail is created to celebrate and underline the exhibit’s traits. Launched to engage philanthropic art enthusiasm, the Unplugged events are creative, fun and affordable ($60/ticket). Including access to the exhibit, performing artists, drinks at no extra cost and of course – bouchées – it is easy to understand why the events sell out fast.
The next Unplugged event (and last one of 2016!) is happening on Friday December 2nd 6:30pm for the groundbreaking photographer Mapplethorpe’ exhibit. An 80’s rock grunge (think Warhol) party is what you are going to get! Live music, voguing, a themed photo booth and other surprises await you. Of course, you will also have access to the exhibit that is ending soon.
The events are created by the executive committee of the MMFA’s Young Philanthropists’ Circle. The Circle is a group of young professionals who are interested in art and get a chance to socialize during organized cultural events together. It is also an opportunity to learn about art and become an active philanthropy for the MMFA.
In order to attend the Mapplethorne Unplugged event, you have two choices. Option 1 For $250 (or $225 with promo code CJP_JANODY for a $25 discount) you receive a full year access to the Unplugged events (three or four a year), Arts Series events (think Unplugged at a smaller scale and reserved for members only), invitations to vernissages and a ton of other benefits.
