The Museum of Modern Art’s Party in the Garden, a benefit event to be held on June 5, will honor Eva and Glenn Dubin and Susan and David Rockefeller, along with collection artists Vija Celmins and Carrie Mae Weems. In recognition of their prolonged commitment to culture, the arts, and MoMA, this year’s honorees are being celebrated for their artistry and philanthropy. Co-chairs of the event are Agnes Gund, Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Mimi Haas, and Marlene Hess and James D. Zirin. Honorary co-chairs are Leon D. Black, Marie-Josée Kravis, and Jerry I. Speyer. In addition, this year’s after-party will feature a special host committee of emerging female artists affiliated with the Museum.

MoMA’s annual ‘Party in the Garden’ fundraiser returns on June 5, and this year the performer for the gala afterparty is James Blake. Tickets for the afterparty, which takes place in the The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, start at $250 and go up for VIP options, or if you want to attend the preceding dinner. It is tax deductible, though.

James Blake worked on Kendrick Lamar's new album, appears on a new Mount Kimbie track, and will also play FORM Arcosanti in May. All tour dates are listed below.
