On Saturday, April 1, PAMM held its third annual Art of The Party benefit, honoring artist Lorna Simpson. Presented by Valentino, the event was attended by over 1,000 guests raising more than $1.1 million for the museum’s education programming.

The event was imagined by Lee Brian Schrager in three parts—Chef’s Table seated dinner, Supper Club lounge, and Remix after-party—all in collaboration with STARR Catering Group and Chef Michael Schwartz.
