Prime Time Parties
Thank you to everyone who journeyed “somewhere over the rainbow” with us as we celebrated the splendor of the classic movie, The Wizard of Oz at the first of this year's Prime Time Parties!
The museum’s Shaw Gothic Cloister was transformed into the Emerald City, complete with magical entertainment, music by dj day-na, great raffles, specialty food & drinks, and much more. The raffle featured a number of items, highlighted by a pair of bracelets donated by The DAI’s exclusive jeweler, James Free Jewelers and an Oz The Great and Powerful movie poster signed by the entire cast of the movie and director Sam Rami!
Great food is always a part of the Prime Time Party experience. The Wizard of Oz Party menu, created by Elite Catering, included Kansas City Barbecue over cornbread, “Have a Heart” bruschetta with “oil can” drizzle, a “Yellow Brick” roast beef Panini, coconut crusted shrimp lollipops, “Auntie Em’s” caramelized pear, mascarpone and hazelnut tarts, white chocolate cheesecake lollipops, fruit pizza and more!
The Prime Time Parties also feature connections to the museum’s collection. The Wizard of Oz Party included the display of Andy Warhol’s The Witch, which is part of The DAI’s permanent collection but is not regularly on view. The print, depicting the Wicked Witch of the West from the 1939 movie, is part of Warhol’s 1981 portfolio Myths.
