Party Arty Colors Outside the Lines

Grab your tickets to one of the most anticipated events of the year.

Go modern at this year’s Party Arty, which highlights Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art’s  modern and contemporary collection Jan. 23. And prepare to be wowed: Party Arty is known for transforming The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art to fit the theme. We’re picturing something colorfully fabulous, with patrons showing up in ensembles to match.

The evening hosted by the Young Friend of Art includes extravagant live entertainment, food and drinks and contributes significant funds to the museum each year, including support for the one-of-a-kind arts education program. Jump over to for tickets (and hurry; VIP spots have already sold out), then decide what to wear—this is one time when basic black simply will not do.
