MAM's 100th Birthday Party
The community was invited to celebrate MAM’s birthday with a free evening at the Museum and over 2,000 attendees came! The event included an opening reception for 100 Works for 100 Years, Spencer Finch: Yellow, and Respond: Poet-in-Residence Project and performances by the Newark Boys Chorus, WFUV DJs Rita Houston and Russ Borris, and students from Montclair State University’s John J. Cali School of Music. We celebrated MAM’s birthday with a signature cake from MAM's Honorary Guest The Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro and watched the premiere of the Centennial Film directed by Dawn Porter. Visitors were encouraged to express their own creativity through creating birthday hats or drawing from a model in workshops run by the Yard School of Art. Guests also enjoyed additional light refreshments and a cash bar, including beer provided by NJ Beer Company and Flying Fish Brewery and food trucks from Hunger Construction and Thai Elephant!
