About The Event

Leadership Circle members and upper-level donors are invited to a VIP Preview of Alberto Giacometti: Toward the Ultimate Figure, which gathers an ensemble of masterpieces focusing on the artist’s major achievements of the postwar years (1945–66). Combining all media—sculpture, painting, and drawing—the show of 60 works draws upon the deep resources of the artist’s personal collection and examines a central, animating aspect of his oeuvre: his extraordinary, singular concern for the human figure. Co-organized by the Fondation Giacometti in Paris and the Cleveland Museum of Art, this is the first Giacometti exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art in almost 50 years. Beginning at 5:00 p.m., join us in the VIP lounge in Provenance Restaurant for cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres as we celebrate this exhibition together.

Leadership Circle members and upper-level donors will receive a digital invitation. Exhibition tickets are required.
