    A Night at the Museum
    For the most fun you can have in a museum, consider the Bass Museum's spirited fundraiser, aptly named, "A Night at the Museum," on Wednesday, March 12, from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. Sponsored by Vogue Mexico and Latin America, guests will rub elbows with leading arts patrons, socialites and tastemakers while enjoying cocktails, refreshments, beats by DJ Mauricio Parra, and best of all,  a private preview of Vanitas: Fashion and Art, the museum's latest exhibition.  Continuing its mission to "inspire and educate by exploring the connections between our historical collections and contemporary art" the show explores  the theme of vanitas as expressed in avant garde ready-to-wear and haute couture as well as in contemporary paintings, sculptures, industrial design and new media.  Admission to the fundraiser costs $250 for two and includes a Rubens Level Membership to the Bass Museum of Art for one year. To RSVP visit, call 306.673.7530 or visit the museum at 2100 Collins Avenue.
