According to Silver Supper 2020 Chair Patty Huffines,
“Plans for Silver Supper 2020 are well underway and my wish for this holiday season is that the community will join me, along with Honorary Chair Nancy Dedman, for a beautiful evening benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts program.
“Silver Supper will be held on Friday, February 7, at 7 p.m. in the Dallas Museum of Art’s Hamon Atrium. Patrons in black-tie attire will enjoy a cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner where pieces of silver from the DMA’s renowned collection, hand-selected by Sarah Schleuning, the DMA’s Interim Chief Curator and the Margot B. Perot Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, will be displayed on each table.
“A highlight will be the unveiling of a specially commissioned work by David Clarke, one of Britain’s most highly creative silversmiths. The work is made possible by donations of personal objects from members of the community, as well as decorative arts and contemporary arts enthusiasts. David will be in attendance to unveil this new work to Silver Supper guests.
“Originally inspired by the DMA’s unmatched holdings of silver, the Silver Supper has raised more than $2 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.
