For one night only, the Hunterdon Art Museum will be converted into the area’s swankiest lounge for its ArtParty 2019 fundraising gala. Guests will enjoy gourmet food, classic cocktails, live music and more! The event is Saturday, April 27 from 6-10 p.m.
Celebrate an evening of the arts at River Vibes: A Night at the Riverside Lounge. Each floor of the museum will have its own special atmosphere and flair: The Reflections Lounge, River Rocks Lounge and Moonlit Lounge. Guests can relax and enjoy the cool vibes, surrounded by imaginative art and riverside foliage and starry candlelight.
“Attending ArtParty 2019 is an ideal way to support the Museum and the arts, and what could be better than experiencing an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience when the Museum transforms into the Riverside Lounge with great food, cocktails and live music?” said Marjorie Frankel Nathanson, executive director of the Museum.
To complete the theme, each museum floor will have its own talented musicians. Performers include: The River Tones Jazz Trio with Anthony Ware, Mike Noordzy and Michael Winnicki; and solo artists Michael Bond on keyboard; and Arturo on guitar.
The evening features an incredible array of food prepared and donated by Chef Mia Emerson of 15 Landsdowne Catering. Look forward to roasted shrimp spoons, Mediterranean chicken brochette, candied bacon, a grazing station and carving station. Sip an assortment of classic cocktails, fine wine and beers and cap off the evening with a dessert display provided by The Lucky Cupcake Company. Plus, Metropolitan Seafood & Gourmet is donating its popular seafood raw bar piled high with clams, oysters and other delectable treats of the sea.
