ArtPoint Gala, Red Carpet Bay Area

New wave and ’80s pop tunes attracted guests to the dance floor all night long as ArtPoint celebrated the closing of the exhibition Keith Haring: The Political Line, at the de Young Museum on February 7, 2015. Some 1,200 guests dressed in 1980s prom and black-tie attire descended upon the museum for the after-hours viewing party and live entertainment. Performances from San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, Tainted Love, Skorpio and the Urban Modulation Dancers, and DJ Matt Haze delivered the ’80s vibe. The event raised over $130,000 for exhibitions and programs at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
