Birds of a Feather Gala

Celebrate Peacock Room REMIX: Darren Waterston’s Filthy Lucre, a reimagination of James McNeill Whistler's Peacock Room, and support American art at the Galleries

On Friday, May 15, join art lovers, philanthropists, diplomats, and artists for a sumptuous evening to celebrate American art and a spectacular new work.

Guests start their extraordinary evening at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery with a champagne reception and an exclusive preview of Peacock Room REMIX: Darren Waterston’s Filthy Lucre, on public view for the first time in Washington. The dazzling event continues over dinner at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium. Guests then “Flock Together” at the after-party and enjoy drinks, dessert, and dancing with a special performance by BETTY, the rock band that composed and recorded the mesmerizing soundscape for Filthy Lucre.
