By |2018-10-05T21:49:22-04:00October 3rd, 2018|Michigan, News|

Dinner, music, hand-crafted cocktails and an art auction will come together on Friday, Oct. 12, in honor of Julie Reyes Taubman at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Taubman, who died earlier this year, was the co-founder of MOCAD and organized various art projects, fundraisers and the museum’s first board.
“In addition to co-founding MOCAD in 2006, Julie’s guidance, exceptional art collection, and friendship continue to serve and support Detroit’s burgeoning arts community,” wrote event organizers. “Julie will be forever missed by the institution she spent years building and supporting. Please join us as we honor and celebrate her vision.”
For those who cannot attend the gala in person, starting on Friday, Sept. 28, at noon, interested bidders can go online to paddle8.com or download the Paddle8 iPhone app to start the process.
“This year’s auction is curated by MOCAD’s Executive Director Elysia Borowy-Reeder, and Susanne Feld Hilberry Senior Curator Larry Ossei-Mensah,” organizers said. “All proceeds from the Gala + Art Auction support MOCAD’s work as a creative nucleus in Detroit.”
The proceeds will also go toward supporting its mission of “connecting artists from around the world to the local makers and innovators living and working in our great city.”
The event will begin at 6 p.m. and last until midnight. Attendees are encouraged to follow the theme of “lust for life” in their attire. For ticketing, list of art sponsors, event schedule and FAQs go online to http://gaybe.am/bp.
