Cirque Surréaliste: The Menil Collection’s 35th Anniversary Gala is a special event - occurring only once every five years - that draws inspiration from the museum’s world-renowned collection of Surrealist art. With the theme of a 20th-century circus, the party’s theme and décor is inspired by Alexander Calder’s Two Acrobats, 1929, and Fernand Léger’s Julie, The Beautiful Cyclist, 1945, and Study for the Grand Parade, 1953-54.

This year’s gala also marks the Menil’s 35th anniversary. On June 4, 1987, the museum opened its doors to the public. Cirque Surréaliste celebrates Dominique and John’s distinctive and inclusive vision to make art accessible to all, bringing together supporters of the museum, the arts, and the city. The attire is black tie.

All proceeds directly support the Menil’s operations, which ensure the museum’s green spaces, art buildings, and programs remain free and open to all.
