Go all in with a VIP ticket, which gets you in early for a champagne toast, an exclusive set from Dr. Scientist, first dibs on bites at the bar, a pair of drink tickets, and a swag bag that includes an invitation to a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the upcoming exhibition “Gray Matters: art en grisaille,” led by Wex Senior Curator Michael Goodson.

Best of all, you’ll be doing good while you have a great time—all proceeds benefit Wexner Center education programs for children and youth.
