“We’ll be unveiling the installation at the Urban Garden Party, which is the museum’s largest fundraiser that attracts a diverse audience that includes neighbors, artists, corporate executives and more,” MF Co-Director Michael Olijynk said. “Expect aerialists, hula hoopers, DJs from around the world, and in the end, it all supports the museum’s artistic and education programs!”
After the event, attendees can head to Penn Brewery, 800 Vinial St., for the after party. There are $3 drink specials available for those with an Urban Garden party wristband.
