99 Times Party

Springfield Art Museum
6:00 - 7:00 PM Sponsor Hour; 7:00 - 9:00 PM General Admission
Please join us for the sixth 99 Times Party, 99x: Return of Joy as we transform YOUR Art Museum into an interactive landscape of living art tableaus and performances - from the hottest local artists, tastemakers, and trendsetters - all inspired by John Grillo’s 1960s abstract painting Moon Goloph. This painting is notable for its striking use of the primary color yellow - the color associated with joy in modern color theory.
Join the revelry at this one-night only event voted "Best Interactive Art" in 417 Magazine! Creative cocktail attire - inspired by the fashion and style of the 1960s Mod movement and yellow - is encouraged. This event is intended for patrons 21+ #99xArt
"Abstract painting is on a level with music. It's a physical outburst from your whole being." - John Grillo
This year's event raises critical funds to repair and restore John Grillo's 1963 large-scale painting acquired by the Museum in 1999. This work is currently on view in our Creating an American Identity permanent collection exhibition. Grillo was one of the most important of the West Coast (Bay Area) Abstract Expressionists. His signature style is marked by an interest in bold, warm colors, grid-like patterns, and sharp contrasts. His works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and your very own Springfield Art Museum.
