DIA event features magical ‘Town Square’ design, complete with town crier

By November 16, 2017 No Comments

The Detroit Institute of Arts Gala on Saturday was magical. With Frances Eisenberg, Nicole Eisenberg, Juliette Okotie-Eboh, Brooke Fisher and Barbara Fisher at the helm as co-chairs, the event was masterfully designed by world-renowned event designer David Monn. David is a New York-based designer who has worked with some of the world’s most prestigious institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Gala, the New York Public Library and the Guggenheim. The inspiration for this year’s gala was “Town Square.” We fell in love with the delightful “town crier” at the entrance. Dinner seating was dispersed throughout the art galleries, set up salon style. Caterer Forte Belanger was on-point with service. And the sold-out crowd — with tickets at $750, $2,500, and $5,000 — was impeccably dressed. The DIA’s esteemed collection was the centerpiece of this year’s annual fundraising gala, which raised $2 million.
