Deco in the Garden

Thursday, May 4, 2017; 6—10 p.m.

Step into the Taft’s garden, back to the Art Deco allure of the 1920s and ’30s, as inspired by our dazzling exhibition Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris. We invite you to join us for a night of glamour! Sip fine wines and coquettish cocktails, enjoy hors d’oeuvres, and vie with other guests in the annual docent raffle. All proceeds support education programs at the Taft.

We would like to thank all of our generous sponsors and host and hostesses for making this wonderful event possible.  Are you interested in supporting the gala?
