Event Details



"In a ballroom, you can be anything you want."

— Dorian Corey

Saturday, July 14, 2012, in honor of Jean Paul Gaultier, ArtPoint will host our third annual Bastille Day Party. Guests will have after-hours access to one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the season, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. Affirm the designer's mantra: "equality, diversity, and perversity," and raise a glass to France, fashion and social democracy.

Dance to the beats of DJ Daniel accompanied by Patti Weiss and not miss performances by Kitty Kitty Bang Bang. Make your way up to Hamon Tower for a view of the city lights. 

Main Event tickets include complimentary drinks courtesy of Blue Angel Vodka, Lillet, Kronenbourg 1664 beer and light snacks, along with the perfect stage for your grand entrance. You might just achieve celebrity status!


VIP tickets grant entry to the party an hour early, at 7 pm, and include an excess of decadent bites and sparkling wine in the exclusive VIP lounge, exhibition tours, and a few surprises.


Patrons will receive all VIP benefits, plus written recognition on event programs and signage. Join us and become a legend!
