Grand Openings

| November 21, 2012 | Parties

The Scene Patrons of the Nasher Sculpture Center gathered for an evening in celebration of not one, but two openings: Rediscoveries: Modes of Making in Modern Sculpture and Sculpture in So Many Words: Text Pieces 1960-1980. The scene Guests such as Capera Ryan, Kenny Goss, Lisa and John Runyon, Barry Whistler and others applauded the man of the night, guest artist Lawrence Weiner, one of the most significant and iconic linguistic and visial artists of our time. After sipping on handcrafted Moscow Mules and Pimm’s Cups in the garden, the crowd took their seats at three luxe 48-foot-long tables, overflowing with more than 3,000 white hydrangeas by Bows and Arrows, for a dinner of roasted beet salad, beef tenderloin and an exquisite salted caramel cheesecake, courtesy of Wolfgang Puck Catering. The Highlights Set to the sounds of clinking wine glasses, Nasher Director Jeremy Strick, Curator of Sculpture in So Many Words Dakin Hart, and Weiner all stood to give their thanks to both patrons and the many artists in the room, to much applause.
