Gift of Gift of 2010 Vote Night and Party
New to the Houston photography scene this year is Gift of Gift of, an innovative idea from Curatorial Assistant in Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Natalie Zelt. Aimed at young photography patrons who would like to help expand the collection at the MFAH but do not have the means to make a major donation individually, GOGO is a collective which raises money through ticket sales for a One Night Only event. During the event, each attendee votes for his or her favorite piece on display, and the winning pieces are purchased with the pooled ticket funds and then offered as a gift of "Gift of Gift of" to the fantastic collection at the museum.
This year's Vote Night Party will feature delicious frozen treats from The Fruit Palette, tantalizing bites from POParazzi's POPcorn and you will be able to sip a signature GOGO beverage courtesy of Nouveau Antique Art Bar or frosty brew from St. Arnold Brewing Company while dancing to Grrrl Parts in the back yard. It promises to be a fun time that benefits a worthy institution.
