Opening Night Gala
Follow TYRUS with a feast for the senses at our Opening Night Gala at the Asian Art Museum! Dine, drink, dance and discuss as you indulge in what epitomizes CAAM — art, music and food. Experience mouthwatering creations from the best of the Bay Area, including Boba Guys, Sol Food, Pa’ina, Magnolia Ice Cream, Lee’s Deli and Rémy Martin, as you soak in the visual riches of the museum’s exhibits and move to the pulsing beats of DJ Richie Menchavez of TRAKTIVIST.com.
It’s the Asian Art Museum’s 50th birthday, and they’re kicking off the celebration with three exhibitions that highlight the sophisticated tastes and impeccable craftsmanship of eras and empires past. See the world through the eyes of 17th-century mapmakers in China at the Center, encounter imperial artists from cosmopolitan Islamic courts in Pearls on a String, and discover the enduring magnificence of golden artworks in Hidden Gold — the perfect exhibition for a golden anniversary.
It will truly be a night to remember.
