The Bass Museum of Art, one of Miami Beach’s key cultural landmarks, along with a select group of the city’s leading arts patrons, socialites and tastemakers will host its annual fundraiser, “A Night at the Museum,” on Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The event is expected to attract more than 500 guests who will receive a private preview of Picasso to Koons: The Artist As Jeweler curated by Diane Venet.

While enjoying cocktails & refreshments from Miami Club Rum and Perrier with beats by Johnny the Boy, attendees will explore the institution’s new exhibition, Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler. The exhibition, featuring over 200 works by 135 artists is an intimate, often whimsical side of some of the greatest artists of recent times, each offering a singular vision of adornment.
