Dinner on the Desert 2023 blends the exquisite beauty of the Garden with the bold and lyrical large-scale sculptures of  international artist, Rotraut, to create a memorable evening.

Event co-chairs, Shoshana Tancer and Faye Kitchel, look forward to welcoming guests as they enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and the breathtaking art.
