The Art Party


Montclair Art Museum celebrated art and community at our spring benefit events, The Art Party! Co-chaired by Patti Elliott and Margo Walter, the events brought together artists, philanthropists, community leaders, and friends of MAM and provided critical support to MAM's acclaimed exhibitions and award-winning education programs.



The Art Party Luncheon 

Thursday, May 16, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.


The Art Party Luncheon was co-chaired by Susann Connors and Janice Linaugh and honored Partners for Health Foundation. The event included private gallery hours where guests could view the Museum’s current exhibitions including New Directions in Fiber Art, and a raffle spectacular. In place of florals, the Luncheon featured centerpieces of non-perishable goods, fresh produce and a cereal wall, all of which was donated to two local food pantries – Human Needs Food Pantry and Toni’s Kitchen. There was an amazing spirit in the air as attendees came together to celebrate art, creativity, and our community.
