In honor of Salvador Salort-Pons’ first year as director, the Detroit Institute of Art’s annual gala will feature an extravagant Spanish theme for guests to enjoy. The late night “La Hora Loca” party will go until midnight, prior to which guests can enjoy a seated meal catered by Forte Belanger and a VIP cocktail reception. “I am deeply honored that this gala celebrates both my first year as the director of this extraordinary museum and salutes the historic festivals of my native land,” Salort-Pons says. “This evening is about more than festivals, food, and fashion. It is about connecting to each other, to our community and the world around us through the power of art.”
