DEAR FRIENDS, WELCOME TO DALLAS CONTEMPORARY AND TO THE SECOND ANNUAL BESPOKE FUNDRAISER. THIS INCREDIBLE EVENT IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE GENEROSITY OF EVERYONE IN ATTENDANCE TONIGHT, AND I AM PLEASED TO BE TOGETHER NOW CELEBRATING OUR SHARED COMMITMENT TO SUPPORTING CONTEMPORARY ART, LEARNING AND OUR DALLAS COMMUNITY. This year’s artistic director, Dallas-based artist JOHN POMARA, intrigues us with his digitally inspired prints and videos. Coupled with his installed works, Pomara has commissioned a performance by artist DANIELLE GEORGIOU and the DGDG DANCE GROUP, which will excite and amaze us during tonight’s cocktail hour. Pomara has also generously donated 12 PRINTS from his FACE-LIFT #1 series, available this evening as “BUY IT NOW!” items for $2,000 each. Tonight’s exquisite dinner menu is planned and executed by TERRY KRANZ and CHEF SEAN FRYE of TK CULINARY. The vision behind the stunning design direction for the evening belongs to GRANGE HALL. PHILLIPS joins us again this year, with the exceptional auctioneer PHILAE KNIGHT leading the live auction. I invite and encourage you to browse and bid on the array of unique and enticing auction items that include specially curated fine art, luxury fashion and special travel packages. 100% of tonight’s live and silent auction proceeds benefit exhibitions, learning programs and daily FREE admission for Dallas Contemporary’s 80,000 annual visitors. The silent auction closes at 22.00 [10.00 PM ], but the party continues with dessert bites and cocktails in the neighboring gallery with the BESPOKE: LATE NIGHT AFTER-PARTY. Finally, join me tonight in thanking two very special women, BESPOKE honorary chairs, BETH EWING and KARLA MCKINLEY who are not only longtime friends of mine, but also longtime supporters of Dallas Contemporary. Both Beth and Karla have held executive positions on the museum’s board of directors for many years and were instrumental in our recent Capital Campaign. Their passion for contemporary art along with their legacy of leadership within the organization is unparalleled.
