Event Pick: Camp Contemporary

Camp Contemporary

Laguna Gloria

November 11–12

The Contemporary’s annual event under the stars has become one of the hottest tickets in town. For $3,500 for two tickets or $5,000 for four, guests stay in beautifully appointed tents on the grounds of Laguna Gloria, where a magical evening begins with a cocktail hour, followed by a feast of local fare prepared in an open-air tent by Larry McGuire. Special musical performances and late-night and early-morning camp festivities like lounging in hammocks, stargazing, bird-watching or just exploring the 14-acre grounds are also included. Chaired by Deborah Green with a committee of creative heavy hitters like Brooklyn Decker, Liz Lambert, James Moody, and others, the unforgettable evening raises funds for the museum’s award-winning art education programs, which serve 30,000 children and adults annually.
