The Party: Funky ultraviolet lights and metallic confetti curtains greeted partygoers upon arrival to Society 1858’s annual Winter Party—Graffiti in the Garden—at the Gibbes Museum of Art. In honor of special guest and internationally acclaimed graffiti artist Sergio Odeith, the main hall and Lenhardt Garden were fashioned with street art-themed dêcor and auction items (including unique skateboard decks designed by local artists). While dining on hors d’oeuvres, guests had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at Odeith’s newest anamorphic mural as it was created. Throughout the night, New York City’s DJ Wolf bumped tunes in the garden while a breakdancing group gave an impressive, interactive performance.
Highlight: Catching the first glimpse of Odeith’s onsite 10’x12’ anamorphic artwork.
Overheard: “Camela Guevara’s Harness is my favorite!”
Beneficiary: Society 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art award
