Veneralia the festival of Venus at the Carlos Museum
Veneralia Fundraiser Chairs April 29 Atlanta

Cutting edge—that is what you will find at VENERALIA ON PAPER, at the museum on April 29. Celebrating the museum’s Works on Paper collection—that includes prints, drawings and photographs from the Renaissance through today—opens the door for a contemporary take on this fun party to support the museum. Co-chaired by Liz Lapidus, Jeff Levy, and Todd Tautfest, and honoring one of the collection’s most ardent supporters, Elaine Levin, Veneralia provides critical funding for programs and exhibitions, while bringing together supporters for a memorable evening.
Models styled by Carey Carter, of Carter Barnes Hair Artisans, will be outfitted in delicate hand-cut paper costumes designed by Nikki Nye and Amy Flurry of the Paper-Cut-Project. Veneralia attendees will also be the first to experience the Carlos Museum’s new virtual reality video, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at rarely seen art from the Works on Paper collection. To close the evening, guests will enjoy a performance by Atlanta-based alternative rock group, Von Grey, a trio of classically trained sisters.
