A+D celebrates its 17th year of progressive architecture, design programs, and innovative exhibitions with its annual gala and fundraiser, “CELEBRATE: IDENTITY” on Saturday, May 12 from 7:00-11:00 PM at the Museum. This year’s theme brings gala goers together for an electric evening of performances, food, drink, and music.

For one night be A+D will be transformed into one of the most interactive spaces of all, a Metro line, where guests will be able to experience the anonymous characters who add vibrancy to our otherwise monotonous commutes. The museum walls will be illuminated by train station scenery, flower shops, and paper stands. The atmosphere of a city soundscape will be punctuated by classical music, drummers, and performers who will emerge out of the crowd, as well as graffiti artists on site.  Platform spotlights will reveal figures in fashions by Marco Marco (performance-wear designer for Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and others), whose colorful and innovative designs famously honor all body types and identities.

Food is by Mei Lin, the winner of Top Chef.  Beer generously donated by Fort Point, wine generously donated by Vin De California.
