Kentucky Derby party at the Michelson Museum of Art will be the setting for Race for the Arts, the museum's annual benefit. The evening will showcase the Kentucky Derby with multiple television screens. The event will begin with traditional mint juleps or a beverage of choice, and hors d'ouvres.
Guests may choose their favorite ponies prior to the big moment when "They're off!" will start the traditional race. Imagine the excitement for guests who have chosen the winner. Dinner featuring Churchill Downs fare will follow. A silent auction will entertain guests as they enjoy good company while supporting the work of the museum.
Proceeds will be directed to supporting a variety of art experiences free of charge to patrons of all ages.
The community is invited to join us in support of this effort.
