For the first time in history, SFMOMA’s Modern Ball will be held outside of the museum, transforming the nearby oasis of Yerba Buena Gardens into a festive scene with surprises around every corner. Event designer Stanlee Gatti will bring his signature creative flair throughout the outdoor gardens, set against the stunning evening cityscape, including a unique tented space atop the gardens’ waterfall.
Two concurrent events will kick off the night: the Gala Dinner will include a seated dinner with a premier live auction led by Sotheby’s Andrea Fiuczynski, featuring a significant work of art by Luc Tuymans; the Supper Club will offer music by DJ King Most, flowing drinks, and gourmet culinary stations in a styl¬ish lounge setting. Late-night revelers will then join Gala Dinner and Supper Club guests as the Modern Ball’s after-hours fête, the Post-Modern Party, takes off throughout the gardens.
