Member Event

Contemporaries Patrons are invited to explore the temporary studio space of 2014 Biennial artist Kevin Beasley, who is currently in residence with two other artists at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Beasley received his BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit and his MFA in Sculpture from Yale University in 2012. Guests will get to preview Kevin’s work before it travels to the Museum’s Lobby Gallery this spring for the Biennial. Afterward, we’ll go a short walk up the street to The Corner Social for drinks and snacks. Guests are encouraged to grab dinner after at The Corner Social, or check out Red Rooster or Sylvia’s across the street.

Open to Contemporaries Patrons. Become a member or upgrade your membership by calling (212) 570-7746.
