deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum's Signature Event

Saturday, May 13 at 6:30 pm


The Party

DeCordova friends and supporters gathered for deCordova's signature event celebrating Arlette and Gus Kayafas and Abelardo Morell. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, seated dinner catered by MAX Ultimate Food, and dancing! Proceeds from Party for the Park provide vital support to deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. 

This past year Party for the Park honored three significant Boston area art world figures: gallerist Arlette Kayafas, photographic printing specialist Gus Kayafas, and noted photographer Abelardo Morell. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to honor Arlette, Gus, and Abe for their outstanding contributions to contemporary art.
