This year CAF’s ultra-cool benefit party turns it up a notch! Introducing New York City’s Grey Area Pop-up Shop featuring a highly curated selection of artist-designed objects that can’t be found anywhere else in town! Featured in W Magazine, Refinery 29, the New York Times, and at the Bass Museum during Art Basel Miami Beach, Grey Area’s Pop-up Shop offers fashionable, high-end items by artists and designers such as Cynthia Rowley, Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Kiki Smith, Yoshitomo Nara, and Zaha Hadid. Now, these are available in Santa Barbara at CAF’s late-night benefit extravaganza. Inspired by the romance and sophistication of the holiday, this fundraiser for the arts offers an extraordinary collection of fine wine and luxury lifestyle auction lots. Proceeds go to CAF’s acclaimed exhibitions and programs, which are brought to the public free of charge! At the party, you can indulge your vices with sweets guaranteed to tantalize, sensational cocktails, art direction by Kat Trajano, and loving grooves by Playback’s DJ Tucker Bodine.
