ArtPoint Cocktail Party

La Femme à Paris, September 2017
Venue Legion of Honor Event Date September 22, 2017 Photographer Drew Altizer Event Photos Available Here  

More than 600 Bay Area young professionals gathered at the Legion of Honor to raise a glass, take in a ballet performance, and fête the closing of an iconic art exhibition: Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade.

"La Femme à Paris" translated Degas's austere depictions of hard-working female milliners in Paris into a timely nod to the female movers and shakers making their mark in the business and entertainment worlds today.

The highlight of the evening was two brief performances by the San Francisco Ballet School in the Gunn Theater. Prior to the performance, ArtPoint President Joshua Reynolds introduced Patrick Armand, San Francisco Ballet School Associate Director, who set the scene for the trainee performance.
