Balboa Park welcomes the unusual and extraordinary as the Avant Garde Costume Gala fills the galleries of the Mingei International Museum.
On June 19th, 2015, Vanguard Culture turns the Mingei International Museum into a stage of culture, cuisine, costume and creativity. The Avant Garde Costume Gala encourages guests to put on their most out-of-this-world threads and celebrate creativity and the arts. Guests will indulge in delicious cuisine and sip on captivating cocktails, while wearing the most outrageous costumes during a night of fun and fantasy. Live body painting and photo booth galore will also bring guests into a world of questionable fashion and outstanding visuals.
The wild and wonderous wearings of the guests will not be the only eye entertainment promised this night. Vanguard Culture has arranged for some of San Diego’s top talent to provide visual and auditory scenes to fill the galleries of the Mingei International Museum. Promised for the night are live performances by the California Ballet, The Patricia Rincon Dance Collective, The Animal Cracker Conspiracy, Priscilla the Empress of Pop and an Avant Garde Fashion Show by Shawn Michael Style sponsored by Henebery Celebrated Whiskey. The entertainment does not stop on stage, as costumed characters are sure to be found roaming the galleries among the guests.
Vanguard Culture has planned this night of fun with help from a gracious group of donors including fiscal sponsorship by the Media Arts Center San Diego; PR sponsorship by Fashion Week San Diego, Easy 98.1FM and the San Diego Visual Arts Network; food and drink generously provided by Baja Wine + Food, Bare Organic Mixers, Butter Bakery, El Jardin by Chef Ryan Steyn, El Perdido Tequila, Henebery Celebrated Whiskey, Muzita Bistro, Old Harbor Distilling, Snake Oil Cocktail Co., and XB Sex of the Beach Mixers; and promotional materials by Nationwide Promotions, and Sign King.
