SFMOMA is pleased to announce Holy Ghost! and Passion Pit (DJ Set) as the co-headliners for The Modern Ball, taking place on Wednesday, April 30. The museum's biennial fund-raising gala will be held outside SFMOMA's building for the first time this year, transforming Yerba Buena Gardens into a spectacular party space with surprises around every corner. The evening brings together three sensational experiences, all designed by Stanlee Gatti: the Gala Dinner, Supper Club, and Post-Modern Party. The Modern Ball supports SFMOMA's California-wide exhibitions and innovative education programs serving more than 60,000 students, teachers, and families each year.
A live performance by Holy Ghost!, a synthpop duo from Brooklyn, and a DJ set by Passion Pit, an indietronica festival favorite, will light up City View at Metreon as the late-night Post-Modern Party gets under way. The party will continue late into the night with entertainment throughout the gardens, including a silent disco tent.
