According to Silver Supper 2020 Chair Patty Huffines,
Please join me, along with Honorary Chair Nancy Dedman, for Silver Supper 2020 benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts program.
The event will be held on Friday, February 7, in the Museum’s Hamon Atrium, which will be transformed by Garden Gate Floral Designer Junior Villanueva. Guests in black-tie attire will enjoy a cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner, where displayed pieces of silver from the DMA’s renowned collection will be beautifully featured on each table. Each piece will be carefully selected under the guidance of The Margot B. Perot Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Design Sarah Schleuning.
I am also thrilled to announce special guest David Clarke, one of Britain’s most highly creative silversmiths. His work is widely sought after both in the UK and internationally, and it is featured within a number of prominent museum collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The National Museum of Northern Ireland, The National Museum, Oslo; and the Dallas Museum of Art. Silver Supper patrons will have first view of a specially commissioned work by David, made possible by donations of personal objects from members of this community as well as decorative arts and contemporary art enthusiasts.
Originally inspired by the DMA’s unmatched holdings of silver, the Silver Supper has raised more than $1 million for the Decorative Arts Acquisition Fund. Silver Supper 2020 will continue this celebration of the Museum’s exceptional international collection of decorative arts and design, and we hope the community will support this special evening.”
