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

"Cutting edge" aptly describes this year's Veneralia theme, VENERALIA ON PAPER. Slated for April 29, and celebrating the museum’s Works on Paper collection—photographs, prints, and drawings from the Renaissance through today—VENERALIA ON PAPER will be a contemporary take on this festive party. Co-chaired by Liz Lapidus, Jeff Levy, and Todd Tautfest, and honoring one of the collection’s most ardent patrons, Elaine Levin, the annual event provides critical funding for programs and exhibitions, while bringing together supporters for a memorable evening.
Models styled by Carter Barnes on Paces will supply the wow factor as they move through the crowd be outfitted in delicate, hand-cut paper costumes designed by Nikki Nye and Amy Flurry of the Paper-Cut-Project. Attendees will also be the first to experience the museum’s new virtual reality video that will offer a behind-the-scenes look at rarely seen art from the Works on Paper collection. And to close the evening, guests will enjoy a performance by Atlanta-based alternative rock group, Von Grey, a trio of classically trained sisters.
