Special Event

Studio Menil Presents: Fun & Games!

The Menil Collection’s much talked about spring party returns on Thursday, March 31, 2022, with the theme Studio Menil Presents: Fun & Games. The event will be a playful, yet sophisticated, celebration of the many instances in which artists reference games in their work, such as Jim Love’s Jack sculpture, Dominoes by Fernand Léger, Juan Gris’s still life with a checkerboard, and Joseph Cornell’s unique boxes.

Join us as Richmond Hall is transformed for the fun occasion, with every aspect of the décor featuring a surprise and creative game-themed element. The evening will include colorful cocktails, amusing hors d’oeuvres, an artfully presented seated dinner, and will be accompanied with entertainment by Danny Ray and The Acoustic Production.

Table prices range from $12,500 to $25,000, with a limited number of individual tickets available for $1,250 each. Proceeds from Studio Menil Presents: Fun & Games will directly support the Menil Collection’s operations. Everything the Menil does, from its exhibitions to its programs to access to its green spaces, is always provided free of charge to the public.

Guests at Studio Menil are encouraged to incorporate a game-inspired twist into their cocktail attire.
