I recently told you about the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and its Art: 314 event. I explained how the museum depends on membership to support itself. I noted the Young Friends program. I introduced an amazing artist that would show at the auction, and noted the many other important artists. Yes, we’ve gone over all of this before. Now, let’s take a quick peek inside the party.
The CAM’s Young Friends were one of the true stars of the evening. If this packed, loud event was any indication, that is one fun-loving group of art supporters. We munched on appetizers and sipped on cocktails from one of my favorite local eateries, Square One Brewery and Distillery in Lafayette Square. The minute I saw beer pretzels with mustard—SO. GOOD.—I nearly lost my mind. After eating and mingling, Lance and I admired the art up for auction and took a stroll around the museum. We even drew our own ‘fundred‘ dollar bills, because neither of us can turn down an opportunity to color.
Thanks for the invitation, CAM!
Don’t forget: I was invited by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to explore their Young Friends Program. I received complimentary access to events, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
