The Big Dinner
from 250.00

The Big Dinner is an annual fundraiser to support Laumeier Sculpture Park’s exhibition, education and outreach programs. This year’s event will literally and figuratively “light up the night” with artworks by neon artist and sign historian David Hutson. Enjoy an exclusive VIP preview of Hutson’s exhibition for the 2018 Kranzberg Exhibition Series in the Aronson Fine Arts Center, which includes the artist’s personal collection of signs from old St. Louis businesses. Laumeier has also commissioned Hutson to create two NEW neon works for installation outdoors.

Join Laumeier on Saturday, September 22, for cocktails, dinner, live entertainment and an artistic evening under the stars as we unveil our new exhibition and kick off the upcoming Laumeier After Dark series. 

Ages 21 and up only. Reservations are $250–$500 per person; no physical tickets.
