It is Party Arty season! The event is just around the corner. Do you have your tickets yet? Better get on it. The party is Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. and goes until midnight.
What Your Ticket Includes:
Your ticket grants you access to live music and performances, delicious food, beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and more, all set within the glittering chambers of the Nelson-Atkins.
Party Arty is also your chance to help fund significant museum efforts; your ticket allows the museum to continue to serve more than 70,000 children each year through the museum’s arts education outreach program and maintain free daily admission to 500,000 visitors each year.
The Theme + What to Wear
This year's theme is "Night of the Shining Sun."
"Descend into the Valley of the Queens in splendor and discover the radiant beauty of ancient Egypt at Party Arty: Night of the Shining Sun, inspired by the featured exhibition Queen Nefertari: Eternal Egypt at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. While the night may not be eternal, you can expect timeless memories of power, beauty, and mystery."
Think gold jewelry, tons of glitter, warm hues, sunset eyeshadow, geometric solar shapes, and other deep nighttime colors like burgundy, navy blue, and pine green.
Below is some inspiration from The Nelson-Atkins' Pinterest to get you started.
