The Kemper Gala 2018

The Kemper Gala 2018, “Body Electric: Color The Night. Ignite Your Soul.,” was held on October 13th at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Christy and Bill Gautreaux were the honorary chairmen, and Lauren Merriman and Lisa Garney served as the co-chairmen. Karen and Jack Holland served as the Kemper Ambassadors chairmen. Guests dazzled in a rainbow of hues and shimmering metallics to honor the evening’s theme. Sumptuous refreshments from the Museum’s own Café Sebastienne pleased both the eye and the palate.
