Night at the M

A Party to Benefit Minnesota Museum of American Art

On Saturday, November 2, the M is throwing another epic party! If last year’s First Night opening party was any indication, Night at the M is sure to be an incredible time! This year’s event will feature a VIP dinner catered by CRAVE, live and silent art auctions, music by DJ Mickey Breeze, and immersive art installations. Complimentary valet service will be available to guests throughout the evening. Creative cocktail attire recommended.
