Scenes from Arts Council of Princeton's Dining By Design: Eye Candy

On Saturday, November 12, 2016, The Arts Council of Princeton hosted their biggest fundraiser of the year, Dining By Design: Eye Candy. The gala raises money for ACP's community education programs for ask-risk populations. As an event sponsor, Princeton Online attended the cocktail hour which was held in the West Gallery's Rattle exhbit, hence the name Eye Candy. Artist Paul Henry Ramirez transformed the gallery into a fantasy world, or rather a candy land, of whimscial colors, shapes and paint drips creating "playful motion and dynamic dimension." The exhibit is on display until January 8, 2017, and I highly recommend bring the kids. 

During the event, guests were treated to live performance art by acclaimed dance theater company Pilobolus. 

Dining By Design was split into two components: Party Boards during the cocktail hour and a Live Auction at dinner. The Party Boards featured opportunities like a private tour of the Princeton University Art Museum followed by a dinner at Mediterra, a private tour of Grounds for Sculpture, and a custom sculpture by local artist Mira DiMartino. 

The gallery filled up quickly, as did the party boards, with loyal ACP supporters, local profressionals and art enthusiasts. And with hip music pumping from a DJ turntable, the Arts Council of Princeton achieved a cool factor that only they can produce.

Wonderful night for a great cause.  Interior design was extraordinary - modern simplicity.  Felt like I was in a nyc gallery.  Hats off to Sarah Hatfield and crew for making it happen.
