On a beautiful starlit evening in October, friends and supporters of the Heard Museum gather to celebrate distinguished individuals that propel the Heard Museum forward and share the values of the organizationâ€™s mission. This year, the event will honor community members Arlene and Giora Ben-Horin as well as world renowned artist Kay WalkingStick, for their contributions to the museum and contemporary American Indian art.
Guests will drink, dine, and dance under the moon, while enjoying musical entertainment, an artist tour of the of the Kay WalkingStick retrospective exhibition Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist, one of a kind raffle prizes and an auction full of exquisite American Indian works of art. It is a true celebration of the museumâ€™s mission and its relationship to the Arizona community. Moondance raises funds to support the Heard Museumâ€™s exhibitions and educational programming.
