Give into temptation and embrace your unknown pleasures for a night inside the storied walls of San Francisco's Legion of Honor. This unforgettable evening is inspired by the exhibition Casanova: The Seduction of Europe.  Come and experience an exhibition celebrating the luxury and opulence of the 18th century through artworks representing the lavish lifestyles.

ArtPoint invites you to take part in what will undoubtedly become one of the most talked about events of the year. Revel in the mysterious surprises that await you at our black tie affair.

This year our annual fete will feature a multi-tier event beginning with a lavish banquet and special performances for our Patrons, followed by an unforgettable VIP experience. Finally, the main event will entail dancing, succulent bites and late-night exhibition viewing. Proceeds from this fundraising event support the Museums’ Contemporary Initiative.
