Clyde B. Jones III, Senior Vice President for Institutional Advancement at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, will be special guest at the May 24 Art as Fashion event at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg will offer an insider’s view of the Met Gala during its Art as Fashion red carpet cocktail party on May 24.

Special guest will be Clyde B. Jones III, Senior Vice President for Institutional Advancement at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York

“Jones and his … staff plan the famous Met Gala,” according to The Westmoreland. “They oversee an army of designers, event planners, caterers, florists and media and security specialists, who make ‘The Party of the Year’ a reality each spring.

“Under Vogue Editor Anna Wintour’s watchful eye, the Met Gala hosts top names in fashion, entertainment and sports from across the globe. The gala supports the Anna Wintour Costume Center, a spectacular collection of nearly 50,000 garments from the 18th century to present,” the museum says.

Set for 6:30-10 p.m. in the museum at 221 N. Main St., Art as Fashion will begins with hors d’ oeuvres, cocktails, music and red carpet creations by Seton Hill University art and fashion students.

Next will be Jones’s presentation on the Met Gala, followed by dessert, more music and the opportunity for guests to meet with Jones.

The cocktail-attire event is sponsored by The Committee for The Westmoreland and supports educational programming.

Attendance is limited to 125. A ticket is $150.

For tickets, call 888-718-4253 or visit thewestmoreland.org.
