Museum of Modern Art Presents 2010 Jazz Interlude

The Biennial Event Is Organized by The Friends of Education, A MoMA Affiliate Group

The Museum of Modern Art presents the 2010 Jazz Interlude on November 2, an elegant evening hosted by The Friends of Education, a Museum affiliate group devoted to encouraging greater appreciation of art made by African Americans and the participation of African Americans at MoMA. This year’s event honors Lois and Roland W. Betts and artist Elizabeth Catlett. The event is chaired by Sherry B. Bronfman. Proceeds from Jazz Interlude benefit The Friends of Education Fund.

This year’s event will commence with a cocktail reception held in the Museum’s Agnes Gund Garden Lobby, followed by a black-tie dinner in the Marron Atrium. Following dinner, the event will be highlighted by an after-party musical performance produced by George Wein.
Past Jazz Interludes have honored Agnes Gund and David Rockefeller, Jr. (2008), Dr. Camille O. Cosby (2006), Dorothy Cullman (2004), and George Wein (2001), with a performance by Wynton Marsalis in 1998.
Tables to the Film Benefit are available for $50,000, $25,000, and $15,000; individual tickets are $1,500 and $1,000 per person.
