The Summer Party

Saturday, June 6, 2015
 8–11 pm

  • Music, cocktails and full bar, light bites, dessert and dancing
  • Juried silent art auction and prize drawing

The Summer Party is the premiere kick-off to summer for young and stylish Bostonians. A social calendar highlight for over ten years, this annual event raises vital operating support for the Museum of Fine Arts. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Summer Party benefits an endowed Museum Council Special Exhibition Fund.

Elegantly summer-inspired and held in the MFA’s dramatic Shapiro Family Courtyard where guests can sip and savor cocktails and hors d’oeuvres; dance to music; browse and bid on pieces in the juried silent art auction. The Summer Party is a chance to revel at New England’s most renowned art museum, with the chicest crowd at the black-tie event of the season!
