WHO: More than 500 guests, including Jimmy and Kathe Patrinos, Maureen Kerr, Anne Johnson, Ellen Kessler, Barb Scheib, and Dmitri Shiry
WHAT: The Andy Warhol Museum’s annual fundraiser, Night of 1,000 Marilyns, benefits the museum’s exhibition and educational programming
WHERE: The Andy Warhol Museum
HIGHLIGHTS: Guests embraced the event’s theme and arrived dressed as their favorite Hollywood silver screen stars, such as Marilyn Monroe — of course! — Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, Jimmy Steward, and Greta Garbo. The glamour continued with free hair and makeup styling, provided by Cardamon’s Salon, and a photo booth, provided by Larrimor’s, that guests were welcome to use throughout the event. All seven floors of the museum were open to explore, including The Warhol’s exhibition, Stars of the Silver Screen.
“We were thrilled to welcome so many people to the museum to see the closing of our exhibition, Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen and enjoy Title Town and our terrific line up of superstars Bambi Deerest, Dixie Surewood, and Cindy Crotchford. This event provides crucial exhibition and educational support for the museum, and brings staff, members, and guests together for a very Warholian evening!” — Karen Lautanen, director of strategic initiatives for The Andy Warhol Museum
